Amman, the capital of Jordan, is a fascinating city that is a unique blend of old and new, situated on a hilly site between the fertile Jordan Valley and the desert. Explore Amman on this 6-hour combination city tour and transfer to ancient Petra.
See the city’s commercial heart, where ultra-modern buildings, hotels, smart restaurants, art galleries, and boutiques rub shoulders comfortably with traditional coffee shops and tiny artisan workshops. You’ll see evidence of the city’s much older past all around you.
Due to the capital’s prosperity and its temperate climate, nearly half of Jordan’s population is concentrated here. The residential suburbs feature tree-lined streets and avenues lined with elegant houses that are uniformly white, as a municipal law requires that all buildings be faced with local stone.
