Continuously inhabited since around 6000 BC, Amman (previously known as Philadelphia in ancient times) is a modern and bustling city, typically ‘Middle Eastern’ but simultaneously western-oriented. Although it has surprisingly few ancient ruins, there are some Roman ruins including the Roman amphitheatre, the Forum and Citadel Hill – which gives one great views of the city. But as this great little video from BeAmman shows, it’s not all about ancient history in Amman. Sample delicious cuisine, head to Rainbow Street’s book shops and cafés, the Jordan National Gallery, explore delightful little boutiques and health shops, head to Souk Jara… hang on. Why not just watch the video?
