    Roman Amphitheatre & Forum - Amman

    One of the main things to see in Amman is the Roman Amphitheatre in the city centre which gives great view of the city from the top. The Forum is opposite and has a smaller amphitheatre. Just outside the sites, you can still see ancient columns.

    This restored Roman Theatre was my highlight of Amman. On arrival here you may be accosted by guides who may be useful to you, I decided to explore the theatre & its 2 museums on my own. The theatre has 3 tiers of seats & a capacity of 6000. from the very top there are great views of the downtown area. Be warned, it's not until you start descending back down that you realise how steep the steps are & they can be a bit slippy.

    Having the ability to seat 6,000 people, the Roman Amphitheatre is still used once in a while for events. For 1 JD, you get access to the Roman Amphitheatre, the Folklore Museum, and the Museum of Popular Traditions.

    Roman Theatre

    by Blatherwick Updated Aug 22, 2005

    The Roman theatre in Amman is the largest theatre in Jordan with room for 6,000 spectators. Thought to have been built between AD 138 and AD 161 by the Roman Emperor Antonius Pius, it is built into the side of the mountain and is still used for sport displays and cultural events.

    A row of columns immediately to the north of the theatre is all that's left of the Forum that was once one of the largest public squares. To the east stands the Odeon which served mainly as a venue for musical performances.

    Two cultural museums form part of the complex: the Jordan Folklore Museum, which has exhibits on traditional life, and the Museum of Popular Traditions with traditional costumes and mosaics from 4th to 6th century Jordan churches.

    Go have a look here, the theatre is in the throes of being repaired as I write, but you can still get in and visit.
