Amazing ruins with an incredible history over the ages. Well worth taking a guide to introduce you and then wandering around on your own. Beautiful setting.

We went off our planned route to check put the Jerash ruins and I'm so happy we did. The ruins are awesome. They sprawl across the massive area so be prepared to do some walking. Not much coverage from the sun so bring lots of water and put on sunscreen. It probably takes a good 2-3 hours to see it... More

A must visit. Beautiful. Make sure you take a guide like we did as no point walking around without knowing the history behind the temples, churches etc… Before you enter the site there is a toilet and a souk where you get nice stuff and souvenirs at decent prices

Forget Pompeii, which is full of tourists rushing through in a few hours - this is simply the best preserved Roman city in the world. I have seen them all - including Baalbeck and Palmyra - but this is the gem of the Middle East. Jordan is wonderful and safe - the people are very special and hate IS as... More

Jordan is beautiful, but this place is something you really don't expect. Great and well preserved ruins and lots of history to share. Only suggestion/concern is the cleanliness of the place - unfortunately many people just throw the trash wherever they want and don't use the trash bins and the authorities seem to never get it properly cleaned.

I was not even aware of Jerash before planning my trip to Jordan. Our group made a stop there for about two hours on the way back to Amman, and am I glad we did! The ruins are huge and incredibly well preserved. I recommend hiring one of the guides available near the entrance. They provide historical background and can... More

First off let me say.. JORDAN IS SAFE! It is probably the safest place in that region. Jerash is the largest Roman ruins outside of Italy. It takes between 1.5 hrs - 3.5 hrs to see Jerash depending on your interest and pace. From amphitheatres to colonnaded streets and circus (where gladiators raced) It is really awe inspiring. The website... More

Let's start by saying this site is approximately 30 miles from the Syrian border. If that doesn't get your adrenaline pumping, the heat in Jerash most certainly will! The area dates back to as early as 3200-1200 BC, so it's pretty amazing to stand in a place that dates back to the Bronze Age. The Romans conquered the city in... More

Walk within a whole Roman city for 3 hours without getting board at all. Do not miss Jarash if you visit Jordan.
