The Amman Citadel is a historical site at the center of downtown Amman, the capital of Jordan. The L-shaped hill is one of the seven hills that originally made up Amman. Evidence of occupation since the pottery Neolithic period has been found and the hill was fortified during the Bronze Age.

Just outside the Roman Theater, tourists can see the few columns that remain of what was once one of Imperial Rome's largest public plazas, the Forum. To the east, tourists can see a smaller version of the Roman Theater, known as the Odeon. Another archaeological site worth a visit is the nearby Nymphaeum, a partially excavated public fountain that dates back to the 2nd century.

Qasr al-Abd

About 20 kilometers west of Amman stands one of the few examples of Hellenistic architecture in the country, Qasr al-Abd. The desert palace, which was built from some of the largest blocks in the Middle East, features two stories that survived a massive earthquake in the year 362. While the landmark is no longer as opulent as it once was, you can still see carved lions on the roof and the sculpted big cats that once served as fountains.

Day Trips around Jordan

You can reach the Dead Sea attractions in around 90 minutes by car from Amman. Get a dose of nature therapy at the nearby Mujib Biosphere Reserve. Explore the well-preserved Roman ruins in Jerash, about 50 kilometers north of Amman. See the famous cross at Mount Nebo and the ancient mosaics in Madaba. And while just one afternoon in Petra might not be enough to see everything, a visit to that famous attraction is indeed doable as a day trip from Amman for time-pressed, yet ambitious tourists.
