Day 2

place Amman – Jerash - Amman City Tour

Good morning in Amman, Jordan! After breakfast, we will start with a tour through the ancient city of Jerash that boasts as unbroken chain of human occupation dating back more than 6 500 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. 


Next we will start with a cultural walk through Amman. Built on 7 hills, now spreading on more than 20. It’s a big city with buildings made of white Jordanian limestone (as dictated by municipal law), Middle Eastern atmosphere and amazing views — to catch the best one, we will take you on the Citadel. You will see the whole city and Temple of Hercules, the Umayyad Palace and the Archaeological and Folklore museums. 


Then, you will see the magnificent Roman Theatre. Afterward, you will enjoy a walk through the old city called “West Al Balad”. It has hundreds of shops, coffee shops and local restaurants. Wherever you shop, don’t be surprised if the shopkeeper offers you a cup of coffee while you decide on your purchase — it’s all part of the friendly, Jordanian shopping experience. Back to your hotel in Amman for overnight.

Explore well-preserved Ottoman architecture, visit charming local markets, and immerse yourself in the warm hospitality of the locals. With its quaint cafés and vibrant community life, Salt City offers a delightful escape, providing a perfect balance between tradition and modernity. Discover the timeless beauty of Salt City, where every corner tells a story and every moment feels like a step into the past with a touch of contemporary flair.

Spend the rest of your day sunbathing, swimming, and enjoy a mouthwatering lunch. Relax in the gently lapping waters and be amazed that you can’t sink! Treat yourself to a soothing massage, or try the well-known healing powers of minerals from the sea’s muddy floor.
