“Amphitheater”
Reviewed October 25, 2013

Well worth the cheap admission - empty when we visited but fun to try out the seats and look around the museum. Top tip. There are no bathrooms near here. Make sure you go before you get here.

“Great piece of history!”
Reviewed October 20, 2013

The theatre, and the square around it are gathering places for many of the people of Amman. There are kids playing football, families having picnics, and others just relaxing. The theatre and Odeon were great sites. A few of the youth can be quite rude to foreigners, but they are harmless; just be firm yet polite.
