The best things to do in Amman

The capital of Jordan is the starting point for most international visitors who make their way to this beautiful country. Although the airport is just 25 miles from downtown, it can take forever to reach the metropolitan area due to improper planning of streets, so get ready for a long ride. But take heart, once you get to town there are plenty of places to visit in Amman.
The city is built on the ruins of a Roman city. It is common to find great archaeological sites here, and visiting them are some of the best things to do in Amman. Attractions in Amman include a citadel and a Roman forum, which together are some of the things to see in Amman. Among the major Amman attractions are the markets. Take a stroll through its narrow streets and shop for handmade crafts and typical food.

The Roman theater is located east of the city and is among the great cultural and historical stuff to see in Amman. Another of the Amman activities that you can enjoy is the Folklore Museum. In the east is the Odegón, one of the places where they hold many Amman activities including many local musical manifestations. One of the last things to visit in Amman is the National Archaeological Museum. If you are still wondering what to do in Amman, you cannot miss the Blue Mosque or the Hussein Mosque.
