Overview

You will leave your Amman Hotel and head to Jerash - the most complete and well preserved city of the Roman Empire. Jerash is one of the Decapolis cities of the north of Jordan. During the Roman Empire it was often called Pompeii of the East. Nestled in a green and well-watered valley in the biblical land of Gilead, the remains of the ancient city have long attracted tourists from all around the world.

Know More about this tour

Leave Amman for your approximate one  hour drive to Jerash. 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.

Here, drink in the spectacular ruins spread before you. 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 ( If Hired ) tells you fascinating stories about the city in its heyday. See its arches, theaters and magnificent colonnaded street, and take photos of the Oval Plaza, an intriguing oval-shaped forum, as you conjure up images of the people who once lived here.

After your walking tour finishes, return to your vehicle and travel back to Amman. Your excursion ends with a hotel drop-off in the afternoon.
