    Stop At: Jerash Ruins, Jerash Jordan

    The ancient city of Jerash boasts as an unbroken chain of human occupation dating back to more than 6500 years. The city’s golden age came under Roman rule and the site is now generally acknowledged to be one of the best preserved Roman provincial towns in the world. Hidden for centuries in sand before being excavated and restored over the past 70 years, Jerash reveals a fine example of the grand, formal, provincial Roman urbanism that is found throughout the Middle East, comprising paved and colonnaded streets, soaring hilltop temples, handsome theatres, spacious public squares and plazas, baths, fountains and city walls pierced by towers and gates.

    Duration: 3 hours

    Stop At: Amman, Amman, Amman Governorate

    Amman is the modern, as well as the ancient capital of Jordan. During the Iron Age and later as Philadelphia, the ancient city that was once part of the Decapolis league. Often referred to as the white city, due to its low size canvas of stone houses, Amman offers a variety of historical sites. Towering above Amman, the site of the earliest fortifications is now subject to numerous excavations which have revealed remains from the Neolithic period as well as from the Hellenistic and late Roman to Arab Islamic Ages. The site which is known as the Citadel includes many structures such as the Temple of Hercules, the Omayyad Palace and the Byzantine Church.
    At the foot of the Citadel lies the 6000 seat Roman Theatre which is a deep-sided bowl carved into the hill and still used for cultural events. Another newly restored theatre is the 500-seat Odeon which is used for concerts. The three museums are the Jordan Archaeological Museum, The Folklore Museum and the Museum of Popular Tradition.
