This is a huge Roman Amphitheater ruin in the middle of downtown Amman and it's amazing to see! It is huge and so impressive! You can climb up the steps and go all the way to the top. We also tested the acoustics as well. I think this is a must see while in Amman. It's part of the Jordan... More

As most of the Roman amphitheaters in the world, this one also is a marvel. Quite intriguing and lots of history involved. An absolute must visit.

Just visited in the afternoon with a group tour. The structure looks similar to that in Turkey. Impressed with the construction during that time. Police were constantly on look out for any possible rowdy crowd, this gives assurance to visitors.

After our visit to the Citadel, we made our way down to the Roman Amphitheater. It is well preserved and worth a wander on your way to the down town area and shopping. We went to Jerash which is an amazing site and over-shadows the city based attractions. If you don't get to Jerash you will still be able to... More

The amphitheater in Jerash is more impressive. The museums on the grounds are pretty disappointing. It is worth seeing if you love history, but it is not as nice as some other sites.
