Owner description: Step back 2,000 years in time with a visit to the ruins of this imposing amphitheater, which once held 5,000 spectators, and is still used today for theater and entertainment.

Looking at this structure, one can imagine the number of activities that took place here during the time of the Romans.It is also interesting to see how it has remained intact after all these years, a tribute to their architectural skills. The museum on the compound is also worth seeing.

I understand it is inuse for concerts, the area around it has been renovated and landscaped, a visit in the evening is well worth it.

only the wall-to-wall local houses on the right side of the monument is kind of ...erratic, otherwise is excellent site to see

Quite a large amphitheatre...nicely maintained and well worth to visit this place...You can see the citadel from the amphithearte and it has a smaller theatre on the sidelines which was presumable built for the royalty. A mini museum next to it too..
Walking distance to the Amman DownTown Market and hence lot of options to eat/shop around...

Just ok, interesting view from uphill and very integrated among all buildings. Seemed recently restorated.
