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.

Well worth walking to the top to capture some great views of the city. The gallery after is a bit naff, but included in the ticket so worth a wander.

If you have a copy of the Lonely planet do the walking tour written in the book which ends here. Easy to follow and met friendly locals on the route from the Citadel ending here.

Beautiful amphitheatre, very well preserved. Unfortunately it was raining when we visited. The attached folklore museum as disappointing and part of it too dark to see properly.

I actually liked the Roman Amphitheater. There's a nice museum inside too. Just be careful when coming down the steep narrow steps.

It's the most interesting site in Amman. It's very well preserved and gives you a nice view over the city.

Costs £1 to enter so a no brainer for a visit. Sit at the top of the theatre and watch the world go by in the streets below. A good starter before the main event of the Citadel.
