Explore three of Jordan’s most important historical sites with this day trip to Jerash, Ajlun and Amman City Tour. The most complete and well preserved city of the Roman Empire.
Jerash is one of the Decapolis cities to the north of Amman. During the Roman Empire it was often called “Pompoeii of the East”, which indicates the great example of Roman urbanization. A journey through time walking its streets, theaters, temples and places among the great colonnade, the Arc de Triumph, the Oval Plaza and the temples of Zeus and Artemis.
Continue to the city of Ajlun visit the Medieval Castle of Ajlun built by the Muslims during the 12th Century in the time of Saladin for defensive purposes during the crusaders. Enjoy the beautiful scenery and green north fields from its unique towers.
There are two theories for the name of Ajlun either (iron) as there was iron material in the area or because it was built on top of a monastery after the priest name. Drive back to Amman to see the antiquities at Amman Citadel and Archaeological Museum, visit the 2nd-century Roman Theater.
