The Citadel
The Citadel dominates one of the seven jebels—or hills—that make up the capital city of Jordan. Known locally as Jebel al-Qal’a, the site boasts the remains of a Roman temple, a Byzantine church, and an Umayyad palace, along with several other features of historical interest. The Citadel’s Roman temple, the Great Temple of Amman, was one of the principal monuments of Amman during the classical period.

Qasr al-Kharrana
Continue to “Qasr Al -Kharanah”, an imperious 2-level fortress standing in a huge plain. Thought to have been built on Roman foundations, this evocative castle exudes intrigue and dis plays a rich array of Mesopotamian, Arabic, and Greek architectural influences.

Quseir Amra
Built during the reign of the Umayyad caliph Yazid bin Abd al-Malik, who is considered to be the sixth caliph of the Umayyad successors, Qasr Amra is believed to have been a location to aid in hunting. With the preservation of castle carvings and fresco paintings the Qasr Amra is sure to be a castle experience unlike the others.

Qsar Al-Azraq
Finally, head for “Qasr Al-Azraq”, originally an Umayyad hunting retreat and once used as a headquarters by T.E. Lawrence, the 20th-century British soldier and Arab Revolt leader perhaps more famously known as Lawrence of Arabia. Wander around the sun-burnished courtyards, towers, and mosque to learn how Lawrence based his operations here during 1917 to 1918. After exploring here, relax on your ride back to Amman where your experience finishes with a hotel drop-off.
