Attractions & Events
Renowned to be one of the oldest cities in the world, the metropolis is the country’s signature political and commercial centre. The city is laid out on mountainous terrain with cold winters that melt into the warmest summers. Attractions in Amman treat visitors to a unique insight to the cultural and heritage of this truly vibrant capital city of Jordan.
The Dead Sea is flanked by mountains to the east and the rolling hills of Jerusalem to the west, giving it an almost other-worldly beauty. Although sparsely populated and serenely quiet now, the area is believed to have been home to five Biblical cities: Sodom, Gomorrah, Adman, Zebouin and Zoar (Bela).
Amman, the capital of Jordan, is a fascinating city of contrasts – a unique blend of old and new, ideally situated on a hilly area between the desert and the fertile Jordan Valley. It was named one of the MENA's best cities according to economic, labour, environmental, and socio-cultural factors.
