When planning our trip to Jordan we kept going back and forth on whether or not to include Jerash in our itinerary or not. We decided to keep it in, and I'm so glad we did. These ruins are amazing. There are a fair number of ruins to visit in Jordan, and we've seen our fair share of more famous... More

We left Amman early on a Saturday morning with the intention of arriving before the crowds. It took us just 45mins to get to Jerash so the plan was working so far. We were virtually there on our own and decided to get a guide as the site was much larger than we thought. We were so glad we did.... More

This site is an excellent example of Roman architecture. This should be on your list of things to do while in Jordan. Give yourself more than the 1.5-2 hour tour that they allot with a guide. The site is very large. I would recommend about 3-4 hours or more.

We went round Jerash with a guide which is just as well or I think we would have missed a lot. Two weeks on it's all a bit of a blur but there is a lot to see and it was the best bit of rubble crunching I've done in a while. It was pretty warm even in November so... More

I went to Jerash with a friend, not really expecting much after a lot of people told me that if I have seen Petra, Jerash will not be interesting, but they were wrong. I loved it as soon as I walked in. The ticket is not as expensive as Petra (the ticket to Jerash is 10 JD for a foreigner... More

I absolutely love ruins; they stretch my imagination, amaze me with their workmanship, and inspire me to fill the gaps in my knowledge of history. These ruins are fantastic and easily accessible to anyone able to negotiate steps and, able to walk moderate distances. Much of what can be seen here is original, though a significant amount has been rebuilt... More

We love this site since it is well preserved. It is called Pompeii of the East but in my opinion it is much better than Pompeii in Italy. One thing we less like, there are locals that try to get some money by offering help taking a picture. There are some shows but we missed it since we arrived in... More

This site gives you a great idea of how a Roman city would looked. From the gates, to the streets, to the forum, all of it is in great condition. I thought it involved a lot of walking and the paths/streets are uneven due to earthquakes. I would plan on staying for at least 2-3 hours.

Known as the Pompeii of the East. This is in my opinion one of the best sites in Jordon. It does not receive the same press as Petra but is just as spectacular. The vast majority of the site is still buried under the modern city but there is still plenty to see its colonnaded of shops, temples and theatres,... More

Definitely a Jordan highlight a large site in the middle of the modern city. We visited with a guide, but you can hire guides if you need. There was a small touristy market at the entrance, but we moved up to the impressive Hadrians gate before entering the site. The chariot race arena gave you an impression of what the... More
