Getting there & away
From Irbid's West bus station, minibuses go to Al-Mashari'a (400 fils, 45 minutes); get off before Al-Mashari'a at the junction. Pella is a steep 2km walk up from the signposted turn-off but you should be able to find a seat in a minibus up to town (100 fils) or the rest house (250 fils). Check the price first as many of these unlicensed drivers are sharks. There is no direct transport from Amman.
With your own car you can take the newly built back roads to Ajlun (25km), but is best to get good directions from the rest house before setting off.
