There aren't a lot of good tourist sites in Amman - this is one of the best but doesn't really rate on a world or even regional scale. There are some interesting ruins to see and great views of the city but its nothing special. As Amman goes its probably the second best site after the amphitheatre

The place is interesting, mostly the little museum where you can see good explanations in English and some very old artifacts.

I wasn't expecting to see much in Amman itself, but the Citadel is a nice distraction to visit. As well as seeing the ruins and museum, the Citadel offers some of the best views over the city.

Excellent views of the city, and interesting ruins from many thousands of years of history. Look for the huge hand of Hercules - the only piece left from a 13m tall statue.
