Amman

We had one day to explore Amman. Our first stop was the Roman theatre, followed by a walk up the city's highest hill to the citadel. Despite the bright sun, it was the coolest day we had in Jordan.

The Roman Theatre, with its 6,000 seats.

Views from Citadel Hill - this flag is huge. It measures 60 metres by 30 metres!

The following day our hire car was dropped off at our city-centre hotel. I'd read online that driving in Amman is not advised for foreigners and based on our experience driving on to Jerash I can wholeheartedly agree!

I know, it's a shame you don't get a real sense of its size from this photo / angle. Apparently they have to lower it during bad weather due to excessive noise!

Glad you enjoyed the photos

Looks like a fascinating place to visit!

Are these recent images?? Seems like not many people out & about....
Are they "locked down" too?

Cheers!

Jordan is a great place, with so many interesting things to visit!

The images are from November last year, so no lockdowns. The views are generally big enough that you can capture something without other people in the shot :) That said, a little advance planning and/or patience were required for a couple of my people-free shots in Amman, Jerash and Petra - Petra in particular is a very popular place to visit!
