Roman Amphitheatre - Review

This beautifully restored ancient second-century Roman amphitheatre that seats 6000 people is an easily accessible landmark. It was built back in the day when Amman was known as Philadelphia. Which is one of the three Roman structures in the neighborhood, the other two being the Odeon and the Nymphaeum. It is built facing the north so that spectators would not have to suffer the Sun. End the future remains in active use today, most prominently as the location of the city’s International book fair and the Al-Balad Music Festival.

The side entrances of the theater have Jordan Museum of Popular Tradition on one side and the Jordan Folklore Museum on the other. The former has a small collection of traditional costumes, jewelry, masks and mosaics; the latter was established in 1971 to showcase everyday Jordanian and Palestinian items such as handicraft, mosaics and musical instruments.

Roman Amphitheatre, Amman Reviews

  • Long time ago we were going to the Roman Theatre. It’s very nice historic place But I have note regarding work hours. I don’t know when they start it exactly , but you can’t get a ticket after 17:30 🕠 And visitors should go out after 17:30

  • Cheap entry fee Mosaic art pieces and everything in the (very small) museum needs better lighting. Seriously, you can hardly see any of the pieces. It would've been better if more items/more effort was put into the place as a whole, though.

  • Truly amazing historical amphitheater. Visited Couple of museums there, one of which has some very old mosaic prices goes back to 500-600 AC, however, I was extremely surprised that these pieces are not well preserved nor maintained. Some of which were put agains the was on the floor. No protection whatsoever to this national treasure. I hope the government would wake up one Day realizing the are ruining this national treasure. I hope other international western museums would acquire such important treasures and give the the attention they need rather than being treated in such humility. Too sad!

  • Beautiful place. I spent the evenings there watching the kids and youngsters playing around. Lively place with nice coffee shops and ice cream shops around

  • Beautiful ancient venue in the heart of Amman. An evening concert in summertime is the best experience you could possibly have there!
