30 minutes from our Hotel (The Grand Amman). One of the best preserved Roman Cities that still exists. Fabulous Ruins. A bit of a strenuos walk of 2km in and 2km out. No shade at all. Take comfortable shoes , hat and dark glasses.

The ruined city of Jerash is Jordan's largest and most interesting Roman site, and a major tourist drawcard. Its imposing ceremonial gates, colonnaded avenues, temples and theatres all speak to the time when this was an important imperial centre. Even the most casual fan of...More
