The ruined city of Jerash is the largest and most extremely fascinating Roman site, and a major tourist attraction in Jordan. While my interest in History is limited, I found this to be an amazing destination and was fascinated by this spectacular site. This is...More

If Petra is to Jordan what the Coliseum is to Italy, then Jerash is Jordan’s Pompeii, which, as it so happens, is a nickname for the ruined Roman city. A charming Roman city just an hour’s driver from Amman. Hadrian’s gate is well preserved and...More

This place was huge. Much to see and learn. The small museum was very interesting. The main piece that I loved was a sculpture dating back to 6500BC. Not crowded, and to my eye, well kept. There was a man taking pictures of people and...More

My vote goes to Jerash, also. It is really nice. Don't hesitate to take a guide - it will be useful to understand what you will see. As a previous reviewer, I also recommend Ajloun. So, in this way you will visit a castle... More
