Amman & Madaba Overnight

Enrich your stopover with a tour of Amman. Upon arrival at Queen Alia International Airport, you will be warmly welcomed by a representative at Royal Jordanian's transit desk, who will guide you on your tour through Amman. The capital of Jordan, Amman is a fascinating city of contrasts with a unique blend of old and new, ideally situated on a hilly area between the desert and fertile Jordan Valley.

Start your tour of Amman by visiting the Citadel (Jabal Al-Qala'a) for an unparalleled view of the downtown area. The Citadel sits on the highest hill in Amman and is the sight of ancient Rabath-Ammon. Artifacts dating back from the Bronze Age show that the hill was a fortress and agora.

Then you can pass by the archeological museum, the stunning Roman Theater and the museum of traditional culture for an overview of unique Jordanian heritage. The Roman Theatre was built during the reign of Antonius Pius (138-161 CE) and could seat about 6,000 people. Afterwards, you'll pass by the majestic King Abdullah Mosque with its radiant blue dome.

Next, you will visit the Jordan Museum; the Jordan Museum is located in the dynamic new downtown area of Ras al-‘Ayn. Presenting the history and cultural heritage of Jordan in a series of beautifully designed galleries, the Jordan Museum serves as a comprehensive national centre for learning and knowledge that reflects Jordan's history and culture, and presents in an engaging yet educational way the Kingdom's historic, antique and heritage property as part of the ongoing story of Jordan's past, present, and future.

Later on, you will head to Madaba City and spend a magical night there. Start your tour at Madaba by visiting the Archeological Museum, where you will experience antiquity like no other. Then you can pass by the Archeological Park, which the Romans created as a typical provincial town, with colonnaded streets, fine temples, large water cisterns and a town wall.

Mesmerize the beauty of the Church of St John the Baptist, home of the oldest mosaic map known to exist. The first mosaics were discovered purely by chance during the building of the new permanent dwellings using squared-up stones from the old monuments. You will have free time to stroll down the shops and shop in the traditional local markets.

Upon finishing the tour, you will have lunch in a local restaurant in Madaba then head to your hotel to spend a magical overnight there.

Next day, you will be transferred to the airport for your final departure.
