Where to Explore in and around Amman

Take in the Historic Views
Amman Citadel, K. Ali Ben Al-Hussein St. 146
From the highest point in Amman, you have unobstructed views of the expansive city and the vast desert, but this historic spot also houses the Temple of Hercules – the ruins of a sacred space built by the Romans.

Camel Ride in the Desert
