Excursion Description

Amman sightseeing & Jerash 

Start your tour with a pick up from your Dead Sea hotel and head for Jerash (approximately 1.5-hour drive). Travel north in your air-conditioned vehicle and absorb the views over the passing towns and desert landscapes. Then, on arrival in Jerash, head into this archaeological jewel through the ancient city gate. Founded by Alexander the Great in the 2nd century AD and known as Gerasa, this provincial city was one of the wealthiest in the Roman Empire. Stroll around as your guide tells you fascinating stories about the city in its heyday. See its arches, theatres and magnificent colonnaded street, and take photos of the Oval Plaza, and intriguing oval-shaped forum, as you conjure up images of the people who once lived here. Leave Jerash for your approximate one-hour drive to Amman; for the hilltop Citadel. This collection of Roman, Byzantine and early Islamic ruins offers sweeping views over Amman below. Admire the Roman temple and colonnaded as the guide explains how the site evolved through the ages. Next, Travel to the Roman Theatre, cut into a hill in the city centre. Build around the 2nd Century AD; this stunning Arena is the finest remnant of the Roman City of Philadelphia where Amman stands. Marvel at its symmetry and imagine the cheers of the 6,000 spectators who once sat here to watch plays and entertainment. After your walking tour finishes, return to your vehicle and travel back to Dead Sea. Your excursion ends with a hotel drop-off in the afternoon
