The citadel in the heart of the city and great views of the city from top. Go to wild Jordan café for some good photographs.

The views of Amman from the Citadel make this a worthwhile visit. Walk around and appreciate the centuries of building atop this high point, from the early peoples to Romans to Muslims. The museum was the first in Amman and still has nice items in the collection, but the Dead Sea scrolls have been moved downtown. I don't know if the rest of the items will follow.

When you are in Amman, you definitely should go to the citadel, where you have a great view over the city and where you can visit old ruins and small museum.

Great ruins within walking distance of downtown. The walk up to the citadel allow for great pictures of Amman.

Well worth a visit. Especially if you like crawling over ruins. I could have spent all day there.

Good views across the old town.
