Tour description provided by Viator

You will leave your Amman Hotel and head to Jerash - the most complete and well preserved city of the Roman Empire. Jerash is one of the Decapolis cities of the north of Jordan. During the Roman Empire it was often called Pompeii of the East. Nestled in a green and well-watered valley in the biblical land of Gilead, the remains of the ancient city have long attracted tourists from all around the world.

Wander among the original temples, theaters, plazas, paths and colonnaded streets, all enclosed within the remaining city walls. Within the city walls have been found the remains of settlements dating from the Bronze Age, the Iron Age, the Hellenistic, Roman, Byzantine, Umayyad and Abbasid periods, indicating human occupation at this location for more than 2,500 years.

A local English Speaking Guide will be included for 2 hours in Jerash. The guides are provided by the Authority of Jerash under the Ministry of Tourism.

This is a private tour so please list any special interests you have (art, architecture, history, culture) at time of booking to alert our driver, so that he or she can better prepare for your private tour.
