Welcome to Amman

"Welcome to Jordan!" - that's the local catchphrase of this friendly, modern and multifaceted Arab city

Get to know Amman

Explore the ins and outs of this dynamic capital. Situated on a series of rolling hills, Amman boasts modern museums, galleries and excellent food – not to mention some of the Middle East’s most amazing natural and man-made wonders within a short drive.

Amman is the perfect place to kick-start an unforgettable journey through Jordan.

Top things to see and do

  • Feast on some of the best falafel around and sample Jordan's national dish, mansaf: succulent lamb cooked in a delicious yogurt sauce and covered in nuts.
  • Be amazed as you float on the hypersaline surface of the Dead Sea – its shores are the lowest dry point on Earth and it's only a one-hour drive from Amman.
  • Visit the ancient city of Jerash and admire the well-preserved Roman ruins in all their grandeur.
  • Examine Jordanian artefacts dating back to the Paleolithic era at the Jordan Archaeological Museum on Citadel Hill.
  • Spend a few hours in the Jordan National Gallery of Fine Arts, which showcases over 2000 impressive works of predominantly Asian and African origin.

Tips for travellers

Organise a private tour down south to Petra – the spectacular ancient city of the Nabateans, who carved elaborate buildings, temples and homes into rose-coloured stone.
