“The Amphitheater was Fascinating”

We were impressed by the sound in the amphiteater and the good condition of the ruin. While we were there an Arab played the bagpipes. We were very surprised and delighted.

Extremely cheap to enter and a must see! Had amazing views when you climb to the top. Wear sensible shoes for the stair climbing!

“great views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2012

I wouldn't take a day out of your Jordan trip to see this amphitheatre but it's certainly worth a trip if you're in Amman. 1JD to enter and if you have a head for heights you can climb right to the top. More impressive than the two in Jerash just from sheer size.

This is a well preserved and impressive Roman amphitheatre close to the city centre of Amman. Easy to get to.
