Amman: White City

Hits: 193

Jordan's capital city, Amman spreads across 19 hills and includes many distinct districts, each with their own historical and cultural marvels. The topography of the city adds to the sense of eclecticism and discovery, with hidden areas and surprises lying out of sight and ready to be explored.

With Roman ruins, grand souks, a plethora of atmospheric mosques, and a mix of suburban leafiness and downtown liveliness, the city offers plenty to fascinate those who pass through.

While trips to Amman may start as refueling stops before embarking on a journey through the wider region, but they tend to develop into an experience all of their own.
