Jerash: the best-preserved Roman city outside of Italy, with an unbroken chain of human occupation dating back more than 6,500 years. Amman: originally over seven hills, Amman now covers at least 19 hills. It is a delightful mixture of old and new, often referred to as the “White City,” in reference to the white stones used in construction of the buildings.
Jerash: hidden for centuries in sand before being excavated and restored over the past 70 years, Jerash reveals a fine example of the grand, formal provincial Roman urbanism that is found throughout the Middle East, comprising of paved and colonnaded streets, temples, theatres, public squares and plazas, baths, fountains and city walls pierced by towers and gates.
Amman: Amman is a busy commercial and administrative center with many modern amenities. The modern and ancient capital of Jordan formerly known in history as Rabbath-‘Ammon, was once the capital city of the Ammonites and later became the Graeco-Roman City of Philadelphia, one of the Decapolis cities.
