When in Amman (Jordan), there are many places to visit, and this in one not to miss. When you are there, it's worth while actually getting a guide. Our guide spoke fluent English and provided us with in depth insights into these Roman ruins. It's a great place!

Save a whole day to wander around the magnificent Roman ruins. If you go in warmer weather, a fantastic Roman show is put on 2x a day which includes a chariot race on the hippodrome. Get a guide to lead you around and give you the history, then go exploring. Have a listen to the ex-bandsmen play in the south... More

Do not miss this huge ruin when in Amman. If you think you have seen it all after visiting the Amphitheatre and the Citadel in Amman you are wrong. Make your way either by bus or taxi to Jerash. You will be delighted to find an extensive Roman ruin reputed to be as good as the one in Pompeii. You... More

A wonderful roman site that is worth a visit. Think pompeii (on a smaller scale/destroyed by earthquakes/ wars rather than a valcano) but without the crowds and the ability to get much closer to the ruins. It was once a bigger city but the new town was built over a part of it and there are still parts to be... More

Wonderful place, where you can imagine and live history. Many places to take unique amazing photos. Arab visitors pay reduced entrance price: only 0.5 JOD (0.7 USD). You can buy some memorial items after some bargain at good price unlike other touristic sites, where prices are usually exaggerated. Place not to miss when you visit Amman.

One of the many highlights to our 3 day trip. A fascinating site to visit. The imagination runs wild trying to imagine what the city looked like at it's peak. Beautiful nonetheless.

Jerash ruins are a nice place to visit. Quit maintained and calm, I could admire that roman old city and its temples, theater... etc. The attraction is paid, but arab don't have to pay (like in all other Jordanian sites). I think that there is no need to pay for a guide (It all depends of your budget).
