For 3 JDinar you can visit the Madaba Archaeological Park and enjoy the preservation of some beautiful and big mosaics. The park also includes an antique roman road. It’s a quick visit tho

Much like st George church there is a great mosaic on the floor. Its difficult to get a good angle for a picture but the guide was very helpful.

It was interesting to see, the Roman road went through this area and the mosaics are still highly coloured in some areas.

This is actually quite an expansive site right in the centre of Madaba.... There are quite a number of early ruins to see, with excellent walkways giving uninterrupted views. I would suggest going to the visitors centre first and asking them to show you the...More
