We have visited many Roman or Greek amphitheaters and nothing stands as being very different about this one. Still worth a visit and combine it with a visit to the Jordan Museum of Popular Traditions and the Jordan Folklore Museum inside.

It’s a shame this site is maintained in this way... hardly any organization and badly managed make it an unsafe environment for young kids (especially climbing those steep steps!). No tour guides and a bad excuse for a museum make it a less than great...More

Very well preserved Roman amphitheater. Entrance is 2 dinars or about 2.30euros unless no one is there to charge you. It is surrounded by a huge square and two very good museums. It is a good meeting place for groups taking separate cabs from hotels...More

A well-preserved, and maintained, vestige of Roman civilization, the amphitheater is smack in the middle of downtown Amman, worth visiting, by the way, and easily visible from the citadel, a stone throw away and a must see. If you are lucky, you might even attend...More

Entry to this place is advertised as being free with a Jordan Pass. Unfortunately that seems like Jordan's usual tourist trap scam though, as entry to the Roman Ampitheatre is free to everyone. No one mans the ticket barriers, which are so badly designed that...More

Entrance fee included with Jordan Pass. Easy walk or cab ride from almost anywhere downtown. Lots of good places to eat in the area.

I've been to quite a few roman amphitheaters and this one doesn't seem any different/better/ or worse than any other. Not much else here to say about this location.

Yes! There is an actual path down there. It's a LOT of stairs but easier than navigating the crazy streets. If you go to Open Street Maps and zoom in on the Citadel, just past the parking, you'll see a dotted red line... More
