عمان the capital of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan is the site of ancient Rabbath-Ammon and also the ancient city of Philadelphia. A city that has an interesting mix of ancient and modern ... Ammonites, Greek, Roman, Byzantines and Moslems left their footprints layer upon layer in and around the city.
Visiting the Citadel atop Jabal al-Qala'a includes the National Archaeological Museum to see a collection of unusual archaeological finds like the lifelike 7000 year old plaster statues from Ain Ghazal and preserved skulls and rhinoceros teeth that date back 200,000 years. Then visit Amman's downtown starting at Amman Roman Theater, the most obvious and impressive relic of ancient Philadelphia. The theater, which was built during the reign of Antonius Pius (138-161 CE), is cut into the northern side of a hill that once served as a necropolis—or graveyard, now a days it can accommodate 6000 spectators and still used periodically for sporting and cultural events.

Five minutes away you will start exploring the market and city center, its traditional souks, coffee shops, restaurants selling local food and sweets. Amman also boasts a wide assortment of shopping centers and walking arcade.

In the afternoon we will explore the Children’s museum, it has over 150 ways to interact and learn. Indoor and outdoor play spaces help children explore people, the environment and technology. Examples of exhibits include themes of recycling, stars, dinosaurs, super heroes, and all kinds of other things to hold a child's attention and to enrich their world.
In the same area we have the opportunity to visit the Royal Automobile Museum; the museum is a tribute to the late King Hussein. The museum displays over 80 cars and motorcycles that date as far back as 1909. Photos and video footage timeline the events of the King’s 47-year reign. The multimedia room and library serve as valuable and informative resources to visitors.
Late afternoon we Visit Amman's downtown market and city center, its traditional souks, coffee shops, restaurants selling local food and sweets.
