“Downtown Amman”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2013

When you visit Amman you must go to the Citadel. It has a commanding view of Amman! At night it is light up and all the surrounding mountains can see it's ancient ruins. Beautiful beyond belief!!

“stunning view of the City of Amman”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2013

The city Amman was built on 7 mountains and the Citadel is located on top of one of them.
The scenery is beautiful, I personally find this place to be very relaxing with a beautiful energy.

I highly recommend this place to be visited, it's not a long walk, there is a small museum , it's closed on Tuesdays though. It's suitable to visit even if you have kids, because there is enough space for kids to walk and play.

“Average sight”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2013

It's OK, but nothing special. It is interesting to see the path through the history of the place, the view on city of Amman is nice, whole place is well organized and marked with signs and tables with explanations.

“Wonderful view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2013

it is better to go there early in the morning. You have a chance to have a wonderful view of Amman and take a lot of nice pictures, there are plenty of interesting places. Just please take a taxi to get there and out of there. It is not a pleasant place to walk by foot near the citadel.
