Amman “Cultural capital of the Middle East” is also the capital of Jordan. You will start with a city tour of Amman, visiting the Citadel, the Roman theatre and much more before head towards the North Country for a historical tour.
Jerash will be our first stop. The Greco-Roman city known as
the ‘Pompeii of the East’. Built over 2,000 years ago, Jerash is widely regarded as the best-preserved city of the Decapolis, a confederation of 10 Roman cities dating from the 1st century! We’ll explore the site taking in the colonnaded street, amphitheater and more.
Then we will go for a drive through the beautiful Dibeen Forest on our way to Ajloun Castle. The Ajloun Castle protected the communication routes between south Jordan and Syria, and was one of a chain of forts that lit beacons at night to pass signals from the Euphrates as far as Cairo. Today, Ajloun Castle is a splendid sight with a fascinating labyrinth of towers, chambers, galleries and staircases to explore, while its hilltop position offers stunning views of the Jordan Valley.
