Our last day in Jordan started with a lazy morning and after breakfast at the hostel, we headed out to see some of the sights in the city before heading to the airport in the evening. Your hotel can book a taxi to go to the airport which is about 20 kilometers south of the city center. Inform the hotel reception at least a day in advance.

First up was the Roman Theater, just 7 minutes walk from Abbasi Palace Hotel in the city center. This is a similar version of the one at Jerash. Entry to the Colosseum is free, but it is JOD 1 to visit the Theater and the museum.

If you have already been to Jerash or are planning to go, then it’s wise to skip paying the JOD 1 fee to the Roman Theater in Amman because the better version is in Jerash.

 

Since we had visited Jerash the previous day, this was less interesting to us and after a quick visit to museum and the theater, we took a cab uphill to the highest point in Amman – The Citadel. The cab ride of 10 minutes from Roman Theater to the Citadel costs about JOD 0.750 if metered, else don’t pay more than JOD 2. It takes about 2 hours leisure stroll to completely see the area, including the museum (which is a part of the JOD 2 entry ticket).

From most places in the city, and clearly from the Citadel, you can spot the huge Jordanian flag of the Raghadan palace compound, which at 127m high is said to be the world’s largest free-standing flagpole. (A smaller but similarly impressive flag flies in Aqaba.)

The views of the city are the best from the panoramic point inside the Citadel area. A 10 minute downhill walk brings you to the city center.

With a few more hours to kill, we relaxed at the hostel lobby and headed to Queen Alia International Airport for a 8:20pm Royal Jordanian flight out of Amman.

    wow! this is great information. very helpful. thanks a lot. one question. I am also an indian passport holder and I was wondering if I need a visa beforehand or is it visa on arrival when I cross from amman to Jerusalem/ tel-aviv?

    • travelonthedollar

      If you cross from Amman to Jerusalem, then you will need a visa to Israel prior to traveling. Israel doesn’t have visa on arrival for Indian citizens. But Jordan does, so entering Jordan via air or road will allow you without a prior visa.
      Hope this helps.
