Because much of it was constructed in the twentieth century, Amman can be considered a new metropolis in the Middle East. Although it does not have the same storied heritage or enthralling architectural tapestry as other regional capitals, there is still plenty to keep you in town before venturing out to Petra, the Dead Sea, or Wadi Rum.

In Amman, you can receive a taste of whatever it is about Jordan that has piqued your interest. Do you want to play archaeologist for a while?

Visits to the Amman Citadel and the Roman Theater will feel like journeys back in time.

Seeking a complete cultural experience in Jordan? Art galleries and museums in Amman are sure to have what you're searching for, and if you're in the mood to people-watch, head to Rainbow Street.

Are you looking for health advice from the Middle East? Only go to the Dead Sea after booking a treatment at one of Amman's luxurious spas.

While western Amman is home to residential neighborhoods with leafy streets, cafes, modern malls, and art galleries, eastern Amman is where you can get a sense of the city's more traditional and conservative pulse.

Magnificent Roman ruins can be found there, along with a world-famous museum and the mosques, markets, and cafes that are central to Jordan's daily life. The country has been called 'an open-air museum' because of its extensive history. It has beautiful landscapes and shoreline, but it's also known for its delicious Middle Eastern food and warm, welcoming people of the Middle East.
