Try find the spot where the voice Echoes and where singers stand and look out for the spot where the sound travels through the hollow lowest row.

This theatre is very well preserved and nice to see. Standing on top you have a nice view over the bustling downtown Amman and the Amman citadel hill. The theatre ticket also includes two small museums and the small odeon theatre. Impressive to see how good this theatre is preserved. As usual, it's impressive to realise how they build this...

When visiting this historical place you just wonder what events they had there. It is amazing to see the work put into building this place.

Is one of the historical places in Jordan. It's located in downtown and its open in the day time. It worths to visit and enjoy the Roman architecture which was built in the year 160. It has to local museums expediting the Jordanian life. I suggest definitely to visit it.

Looking down from the Citadel on this well preserved Amphitheatre one gets transported back to days gone by. Actually stepping into the semi circle of stone seats one feels like donning a toga and laurel wreath and becoming part of history. The ruins themselves are in incredible condition and are quite an accomplishment in construction. Definitely a must to see.

Once you've seen Jerash or Petra, it's hard to get excited about the amphitheater. But it's in a really fun area of the city and you should stop by on your way to Habibah and Hashem.

The Amphitheather is the best preserved Amphitheather in the world. Situated in the heart of Amman, it is not to be missed. After a climb to the top, take a rest and take in the view of Amman.

The amphitheatres in Amman and Jerash are great examples. I think they are best seen from the top (if you are brave enough).
