Situated in a hilly area of northwestern Jordan is Amman, the country’s capital and largest city. An ancient city, Amman currently serves as Jordan’s political, cultural and commercial centre and an excellent starting point on a Jordan vacation.

Ammn is one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in the world. The history spans nine millennia, dating as far back as the Stone Age. Amman has been inhabited by many civilisations including the Assyrians, the Babylonians and the Persians before becoming part of the Roman Empire. Under the Ottoman Empire the city fell into decline but was revived with the construction of a railroad in 1902. Amman became a busy trade route and began to grow and when Jordan became independent in 1946, Amman was named as its capital.

Today, Amman can be divided into two distinct parts on trips to Jordan. East Amman is the historic city centre and is a hub of cultural activities that represent a more traditional way of life. The western part of the city is more prosperous and hosts most of the city’s economic activities. As a result of these two parts, Amman is an area of contrasts offering a unique blend of old and new to be expeorienced on Jordan tours. It has grown into a modern metropolis that is considered by many to be one of the most liberal cities in the Arab world.
