Description

Meet your private driver at your hotel or another central location of your choice in Amman, and venture into northern Jordan toward Jerash. Explore northern Jordan’s historical highlights on this private, full-day Jerash, Ajloun tour from Amman.

One of the world’s best-preserved classical sites, Jerash was a prosperous Greek and Roman city. Founded by Alexander the Great around 331 BC, the city — then called Gerasa — reached its peak after 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.

Itinerary

Day Tour to Ajlun & Jerash

Pick up in Amman. Departure to visit the town of Ajlun with its fortress; one of the best preserved examples of medieval Arab military architecture in the entire Middle East, which was once governed by Saladin. Enjoy the magnificent view into the Jordan Valley. Proceed to visit the Greco-Roman City of Jerash, also known as the City of the thousand columns. Jerash showcases the grandeur of Imperial Rome (and is sometimes referred to as the Pompeii of the East). It is considered one of the largest, and most well preserved sites of Roman architecture in the World outside Italy. As the most pristine Decapolis City (meaning ten cities in Greek) in the modern world, Jerash’s prosperity can be admired in the colonnaded main street and lovely Oval Piazza. Return to Amman.
