Outside of the Amphitheater is a large plaza, and to get in is only 2 Jordanian Dinar. The Roman Amphitheater offers a great view of some of the city and is right off of one of the major roads. Recommend a wide-angle lens for photo-enthusiasts. Be warned: the stairs to climb to the top are pretty

While the Roman ruins are in a state of ruin their resilience to time is something awesome! For a structure to remain semi intact for so many centuries is simply amazing. Walking through here will take you back in time and appreciate history

Yes I went there and I found it closed due to private party or occasion I don't know . But the positive thing the BAZAR near to it, the lady there was very active and friendly. She spent hours to tell us about Jordanian historical areas all over the kingdom .

Roman inheritance in the center of Amman, it's very beautiful and well located in the heart of Amman the capital, you can feel the glory of the Roman Empire and architecture... The art, now a days they set up some musical concerts and shows. It's worth to visit if you are around Amman.
