Jordan is a pretty old country when compared to most. The same holds true for old Amman as well. In the midst of the hustle and bustle of the city, sits this old fort if you will, overlooking all of Amman. It is a major...More

The Citadel is a great place to explore in Amman. The views of the city are really beautiful from Jebel al Qalaa. The museum also has some interesting artifacts. You should definitely try to visit if you're in Amman for a few days.

We really enjoyed visiting the Citadel and feel it is a must see for anyone fisting Amman. Much larger than we expected and a wonderful place to take 100s of photos with no one else around. You can spend many hours here walking about.

No visit would be complete without a visit to the Citadel. It is in the old town area and is quite an enjoyable site to visit. The walk around the area and the view of the rest of the city is fabulous. There are no...More

This was such an unexpected treasure. Amman has such a rich history and seeing these massive features around was great. There's a great view of the entire city, a small museum and a lot more. It was really cool that you could go right up...More

Absolutely worth the walk up the hill -or a short inexpensive taxi ride. You can use Jordan Pass to visit here, but it is certainly worth the entry fee either way. So much history to take in on top of this hill and blends of...More

Interesting and worth the visit. Entrance is very cheap. No tour guides. Great view to the Roman Amphitheater.

The citadel is history well preserved in Amman and transports you to the ages bygone. It is nicer to visit with the guide who can explain the various Roman, Greek and other influences.

This is another great location to take pictures of the city and the roman ruins. The amphitheater is close by and both places have small but interesting museums to visit.

Fascinating place, take a taxi up and walk back. So much history here from Stone age to Romans. Some huge Roman columns.

I didn’t feel comfortable using local taxi. A private driver is the way to go. He will be available for you to schedule the whole time of your visit to Amman. Clean car and no fuss to request any of the historical sites as... More
