had there been some one who would show you and tell you about things it would have been GREAT.
But, Still it is nice; because there are very huge and descriptive text information in English and Arabic, you can get the point!!
Nice place, really!!!

The finest Roman ruins outside of Rome. I had no idea I would find it in Amman, Jordan. Bebsurebto get a guide. And there are lots of very knowledgeable ones.

The views across the city are impressive although the ruins are less so. Nevertheless the history as explained by our guide was very interesting and the small museum at its centre holds a range of artefacts that add to that interest. You can see the roman amphitheatre which is located below the hill of the citadel.

Plenty to see: highlights would be the temple, the view of the city and the museum which illustrates just how many different civilisations have made this area their home, and how they differed from oneanother

The Citadel is something you must see while in Amman. The ruins are in excellent condition and its a very interesting site. You can pick up an official guide at the entrance for around 20JD and the tour can last 30 minutes or longer - how ever long you're willing to spend. You'll be impressed!
