I have nice memories there. It is a place where you can touch history. It is huge and awesome. When you finish you can go to downtown (wastilbalad) which is nice and full of hand made stuff.

The amphitheater is in down down amman! middle of the business! It is definitely worth to visit, this is something you can hop into a taxi and get to straight away, unalike Petra etc, where you need to plan the day.. many market type of shops around make sure you bargain like mad, specially if you do not speak arabic!...
