Itinerary

Citadel | Amman Roman Amphitheatre
The citadel. This is definitely something that you don’t want to miss as it has withstood the test of time and is evidence that modern Amman has been inhabited for the past 7,000 years.

Upon arriving at the citadel, you will notice that it is grandly situated on the peak of an L-shaped mountain. Its special location will reveal incredible views of the seven mountains that assemble Amman, leaving you in awe.

Citadel Outline:

Temple of Hercules: Built between 162 and 166 AD, this massive structure dedicated to Hercules is larger than any of the temples in Rome.
Byzantine Church: A basilica built between the 5th and 6th centuries.
Umayyad Mosque: The remains of the Umayyad governor’s palace mosque dating from the 8th century.
Dome of the Vestibule: A modern recreation of the interior of the dome of the Umayyad Vestibule.



We will now head off to the Roman Amphitheatre, which can be viewed from the citadel. It is a large and steeply raked theatre that could seat approximately 6,000 people and was built into the hillside and facing north, to keep the sun off the spectators.
