Jerash Ruins
After you see the well-preserved Forum and the gorgeous Hadrian’s Arch at Jerash, you might think you’re in Rome itself. The site, just a short drive from Amman, is home to some of the finest Roman ruins in the Middle East. The city flourished for centuries even after the fall of Rome until a 7th-century Persian invasion followed by a devastating earthquake in the 8th century sent it into decline. For those looking for a little entertainment, there are staged gladiator fights and chariot shows.
