I love all about Jordan I just wish locals would be nicer. Expacially Madaba has a felling you are not welcome. Anyway the location good close to a stores where, with souvenirs and silver. The place is worth to see if you like an ancient history.

My guide surprised me with this little gem. It is small but if you are interested in mosaics make sure you stop by and see it. It is next to a school where they are teaching youth how to create and restore mosaics.

Don't miss, when in Madaba, these wonderful mozaics. The city is full of them but this site should be on every circuit.

With the actual sites of mosaic finds scattered around, I thought the collection gathered here was ideal - you can see a wide range of styles, time periods, themes, etc as you move around the park. The combination with actual in situ material (Roman road, buildings, mosaics) is nicely done. And good interpretive/explanatory signs in English. All within an easy... More

There are 3 parts to the park in different locations in the city. Informative signs give plenty of information related to the sites. All are good for different reasons

There are two Archeological Park's. Archeological Park I had some very nice mosaics and was well worth the visit. There was supposed to be an entrance fee, but they let us enter for free. Archeological Park II is free to visit. It had a bit of a neglected look about it. Mosaics were less impressive than at Park I. Some... More

According to our guide, visit Jordan if you can't afford to go to Italy, while touring the Citadel. Well, I've been to Italy a few times, but this one is different. When you feel like you are taken back to the past... We would have stayed a little longer but time did not allow us... Too bad we visited in... More

The mosaics in the Hippolytus Hall and the Church of the Virgin Mary are simply breathtaking are are worth time to get to. The entrance to the park is included in your ticket to the Madaba Museum as is the Church of the Apostles. Make time to go. If you head over at the end of the day, you are... More
