If you are going to Jordan then apart from going to Petra this is the number one site to see in the country. The level of Roman ruins still standing is astounding and the ability to walk down a Roman street with many of the...More

It never ceases to amaze me what fascinating sites my wife and I run into during our travels. This old Roman city just goes on and on. Guides are available and advisable. Plan on spending time here!

I had a guide, which I believe is necessary so you can appreciate what you're looking at. This is an impressive set of ruins in a very old city of Jerash. Walk from one end to the other, approximately 3/4 of a mile one way....More

We prefer to read the plates ourselves than walking with a guided tour so we spend approximately 2 hours exploring the ruins. Unfortunately, the merchants in the entrance (Jerash Museum) are much more intrusive than in Petra.

I had a nice time visiting the ruins and saw a lot of the architecture as set up by the Romans. Do ensure you have a good hat, sun shades and good walking shoes.

You approach through a busy market where people sell overpriced water and trinkets. they will tell you no water is available inside (not true). the exterior also has over restored city walls. but once inside the site is massive and impressive. The circular forum is...More

Definitely don’t regret making the detour from Amman to come visit Jerash. Only regret is not leaving early enough to avoid traffic as it took us nearly 2 hours to get there (vs. 30mn usual time). So recommend getting there bright & early not only...More

This is very large and important site which will give you a delightful and absorbing couple of hours. There is a great deal still standing, despite the earthquakes that Jordan has endured. It’s well worthwhile booking an official guide.

If you come to Jordan, don't miss the old City in Jerash. A mix of Greek, Byzantine, Roman City with a large number of columns, temples, churches... A must see!

Jerash is around 50km from Amman's Amphitheater but but it has it's own very impressive Amphitheater within the site. If you have enough time, I would advise visiting the Citadel and Amphitheater in Amman on one day and... More

I would advice Jerash which is much more beautiful and big than Kerak. I think it is nearer as well.

Unless you're in love with hot, sticky, and almost unbreathable air, I'd avoid the whole of Jordan, especially Petra and Wadi Rum during the summer months. I went in April and it was around 100-105 deg F (38-40 C). And don't... More
