Amman is the capital and biggest city of Jordan. It is a modern quickly developing city, placed on a spot, on which there were settlements were present as back in time as the Stone Age, with flair of one of the places stated in the Bible, even with Roman and Byzantine sites, and all this added to the Islamic heritage of its people.
Amman offers to the visitor a mix of ancient artifacts and historical places with the trill and fuss of modern and quickly developing Arab city, which is unparalleled in the whole Middle East. On the historical side you must see the Roman Theater, the Umayyad Restored Palace and the Jordan Archeological Museum, which holds an impressive collection of artifacts, while if you are more into modern tourism you may be impressed by Souk Sukkr market street and the impressive landscape of this hillside city. For the lovers of cultural exploration the combination of busting modern city with the traditional coffee-shops and Arab markets will be most intriguing.
