Amman is Jordan’s cultural and economic centre and a thriving global city in its own right. Renowned for its historical significance, Amman offers a chance to discover some of the world’s oldest monuments, as well as some of the best foods in the Middle East.
Of all the exciting historical monuments in the Jordan capital, perhaps the most significant is the Amman Citadel – a group of ancient buildings on one of the city’s seven hills. Here you’ll find the iconic Temple of Hercules, a relic of Roman rule across the region as well as ruins from other bygone civilisations.
Amman has plenty of museums worth checking out. The Jordan Museum located next to the City Hall outlines the country’s epic history, from its very first settlers to its contemporary achievements. Elsewhere, car fans will love the Royal Automobile Museum, which boasts a collection of more than 70 classic cars and motorcycles from the personal collection of King Hussein.
Amman is packed with delicious culinary options that are sure to satisfy all cravings. For authentic Jordanian food you can’t miss Hashem, a simple bistro located in the city’s bustling centre that serves some of the best falafel in the country. Fine diners should check out Fakhr el-Din, an award-winning Lebanese restaurant serving some of Amman’s best mezze.

Ammon has lots of ruins to see and close to dead see but if you like alcohol and night life I suggest different destination.Alcohol expensive and scarce except at high end hotels and nightlife bars are worst ripoffs ever be careful in bars your bill can easy total $3000 so be careful.
Amman is a safe city. We never felt fear or threats. No one seemed "dangerous" on the street to walk near or among. Often after dark we were out and about. People who knew English were more than happy to help us. My wife and I are Russian, Jordanians love Russian people. So in the midst of unearned "Russia-hate", we never experiences any dislike or negativity.
Amman is a great spot . nice weather , a lot of great resturants and cafe 's all over the city such as Rajeen , Ward, Almoheet , Jafra , Jabal and more . you can eat great food at any place in Amman . Alabdali mall and the boulivard district are amazing spots for all the family members . Great old town with a lot of amazing cafe's and shops . Do not miss drinking sugar cane Juice and Kunafa from Habiba .
Too busy roads most without zebra crossing or traffic lights, a chaotic driving and noisy town , dangerous to walk any time of the day or night. People although friendly and helpful and besides driving or walking, safety is the feeling you get.
Amman is a great city in the heart of the middle east. It is pretty safe and the locals are friendly. There are ancient ruins to explore and many interesting precincts to visit. The city is hilly and most old buildings are made of limestone - it looks at times like Marseille in France.
1st day- went to Citadel and did a free walking tour through our hotel. 2nd- Baptismal site, Dead Sea at Oh Resort, and Mount Nebo. 3rd- Jaresh ruins. We never felt rushed or exhausted for any of these day trips. Perfect amount of time!
