“Best later in the afternoon”
Reviewed September 27, 2013

Superb views, but especially in the late afternoon / sunset when the site is a bit more quiet. Would advise getting a taxi up there though, it's a hell of a walk.

Most of the 'interesting' artefacts in the museum have been moved out to the new Jordan Museum, but it's still worth a look in.

“Must see in Amman”
Reviewed September 25, 2013

Amazing site in Amman dating back to Hellenic times with a view over the amphitheatre. Lots of ruins and a small museum make this a really interesting half day excursion.

“Interesting place”
Reviewed September 24, 2013

This is located in town near the Roman Theater. It had lots of ruins and a nice museum typical of most Middle Eastern museums . The brazier located near the Mamluke cannon is worth a second look. Unbelievable piece of work donated by a German museum.

“Wonderful Afternoon”
Reviewed September 23, 2013

We opted to go ourselves to the Citadel, Roman Theater, and old Amman. We took our time and throughly enjoyed the quite and amazing vistas. The site needs to be enjoyed and absorb the atmosphere. Easy to get there and back.
