Is Amman Worth Visiting?

Amman, the capital city of Jordan, is nestled on a series of hills in the northwestern corner of the country. Known as the modern and ancient city entwined, it serves as an enchanting amalgamation of Middle Eastern traditional culture and modern lifestyle. It's renowned for its historical sites like the Citadel, home to the ruins of the ancient Temple of Hercules and Umayyad Palace, and the stunningly-preserved Roman Theatre. Bursting with museums, ample green spaces, and hip art galleries, Amman also offers excellent showcases of the country's history and arts scene. Its bustling downtown area, traditional coffee shops, vibrant souks, and high-end restaurants cater perfectly to foodies and shopaholics. Balmy with rich history and modernity, Amman is undoubtedly a city of contrasts.
