What You Can Expect

Meet your driver at your Amman hotel, and set off by private, air-conditioned vehicle around the landmarks.

Climb to the Citadel, and head inside (own expense) to view the ruins, including the Roman Temple of Hercules, and 8th-century Umayyad Palace. Soak in the sweeping city views from the hilltop, and then continue to the Roman Theatre.

Enter the 1st-century amphitheatre and the nearby Museum of Popular Traditions (both at own expense), and after two hours’ exploring Amman, journey to Jerash, one of the Middle East’s best-preserved Roman cities.

Go inside (own expense) and explore independently or hire a local guide (additional cost). Built by Alexander the Great in the 2nd century BC, Jerash was one of ancient Rome’s Decapolis league — a group of 10 self-governing cities. Walk through the gateway to see highlights like the Oval Plaza, Colonnaded Street, and baths, and theaters.

Then, drive to the Dead Sea, the salt lake set 1,312 feet (400 meters) below sea level. Enjoy around an hour free to float in the salt-rich waters and relax on a mineral beach equipped with parasols and showers. Swimming pools, a restaurant, and other amenities are nearby.

Your tour ends with a hotel drop-off in Amman.
