It was a short trip. Very nice place. Teleports you to that era. One wonders how it was built. Well preserved, the guards over there are very friendly people.

The place was nothing like I have imagined it nor seen it in pictures. It was magnificent! The plaza was larger that I thought and the theater was huge! We couldn't get in without paying money so we looked from outside. Honestly it is just amazing, everyone should go and take a look.

Very impressive. Make sure to visit this if you visit the Citadel. You can see this from the Citadel but it is much more impressive if you are there in person. They to go in the late afternoon so the sun light will light up the entire arena. If you go in the mornings you either have no light or... More

A must see very impressive and majestic amphitheatre from the past history of the Romans. It is still preserved but part of it has been eroded, however; a sight that you must visit if you are in Amman. Very close to the hill and central attraction of Citadel, suggest cover both in the same trip.

If you like Roman ruins you will sure like this monument. It is very well restored and can be climbed and admired from every angle. It really helps to imagine life back in the Roman days and the number of slaves it took to build. We used our Jordan Wanderer Pass for entry. Every traveller needs one. Pays for visa... More

Beautiful Roman Theater in the center of town. The Place is in good condition and the entrance is cheap, or free with the Jordan Pass. There is a beautiful museum on the left side of it with great dresses, jewelry and artifacts of the era.

I didn't expect there to be such a well maintained amphitheatre in Jordan so this was a lovely surprise. If you have a head for heights you can walk up all the stairs to the top and you get good views but even if you don't want to you still get a good perspective of the amphitheatre and what it...
