A very interesting couple of hours both outside and in the information centre. Best to drive there and not attempt the climb on foot out of the Downtown area

Place was very beautiful and filled with history. This should be a place that everyone make sure they go to when they visit. Loved how you could still see Hercules hands and to top it off there's a museum there with a lot of historic...More

A must visit while in Amman. Some of the Roman ruins are still in tact and the museum is excellent. The city views from the citadel are amazing. Go in the morning or late afternoon to avoid the heat at mid-day. Although you can spend...More

As planned with my agency, they recommended us to visit it. I Would recommend visit it with a guide to get more historical details about the ruins

Located in the center of Amman. On one of the main hills. Has a great view of the City and Red Roof Palace. Also the Temple of Hercules or whats left.

This is a great place to visit in Amman city. Located on the plateau of seven hills, this place gives an amazing view of Amman city. Worth visiting.

Probably the best views in the city. Located on top of a mountain that overlooks most of Amman. Come here and then walk down to the Roman Amphitheater and old town.

Went here since the Jordan Museum wasn't open yet. Need to take a cab to get here, but it's worth a visit. The museum is old and dated, but has a lot of great information. I liked visiting here versus The Jordan Museum.

I enjoyed coming to this historic area at the top of a hill in Amman because it gives you a great overview of the city and how it sits within its landscape. The city is on 7 hills and you really see how the urban...More
