For me the amphitheater at jaresh is a much better, guess I was a little spoilt. However with the Jordan pass you have effectively paid for entry already, so worth a look around

This was only a moderate walk from our hotel in central Amman. Well worth the effort to see another well preserved example of Roman architecture.

This is an amazing 2000 year old amphitheater in the middle of a very large city. The remains of this amphitheater are intact enough to convey the amazing structure this was when it was a part of the city life.

This ruin is great, you can climb all over it and explore. Much of it has (unfortunately) been restored as they do use it for events, but it certainly gives you the feel of the original. It was a wonderful view from our hotel room...More

Largest Roman ruins outside of Italy. Very impressive. Our guide was quite knowledgeable and spoke excellent English. Our trip organizer was Ola Faria, who was excellent.

Once you’ve seen one amphitheater you’ve seen them all really, it is a good example but looking around is a 5 minute job.
