It's with the citadel of amman. When you climb up here, you can see the whole view of Amman with a wide angle. Sunset of the place is also incredible.

This is a really good museum, however, if you do no have knowledge of Levantine archaeology it could be quite boring. The items are not well labelled, but the items are loosely in chronological order.

This museum has some very unique items, I've not seen before–so interesting, I am so happy I stepped inside...This archeological site is quite fascinating–and adds a different flavor to Amman.

Its an old roman ruin that is a bit incomplete compared to the other ruins you find in italy, sicily , turkey.....I would not recommend this place or the city tours as time is always money when traveling. Go straight to Petra, stay there overnight at Kimpinsky or similar hotel as Petra is a gem to wander about for days.
