This full-day tour from Amman will allow you to discover the often unnoticed historical highlights and beautiful landscape of Northern Jordan.
Your private driver will meet you in Amman at your hotel or another central location of your choice and drive you to the ancient Greek and Roman city of Jerash. Jerash is renowned worldwide for being one of the world’s best-preserved classical sites. Founded by Alexander the Great around 331 BC, the city — then called Gerasa — reached its peak after the Roman conquest in 63 BC, later becoming one of the 10 great Decapolis cities of the east.
Then, travel to nearby Ajloun Castle, a 12th-century fortress built by the forces of Saladin to defend against Crusader incursions. The hilltop edifice is a stunning example of medieval Arab-Islamic military architecture and was built to dominate three major passages into northwest Jordan. Go inside (own expense) and look around the towers, corridors, and small museum, absorbing the historical atmosphere and scenic views. Finally, reconvene with your driver and return to Amman, where your tour ends with a drop-off at any central location of your choosing.
