This place is well worth a visit, plan on spending a few hours here as there is alot to see, there are an amazing array of ruins and buildings, and the views of Amman are worth the entry price alone which was very cheap, when you have finished there are a set of steps at the end of the road, which lead down to the ampitheatre site.

Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and proud of the history of the Cidadel. Well worth the visit.

This was an incredible City. We saw so much and had a local guide tell us a little history. Plenty of oportunities to take photos and see the views over the old and new City

The Citadel was our first trip upon arriving in Jordan and I think that this was a good decision. I'm certainly glad I didn't save it til last. Take a wander up, admire the view - walk around and you're done, save your time for Jerash!

There is a nice view from this site of the city and the Roman amphitheatre. However, within the site itself, the ruins are modest at most. If you don't like the sun, don't go as there is no shade inside.
