Jerash is famous for its spectacular Roman ruins. The archaeological site presents you with one of the finest examples of a preserved Roman city anywhere in the Middle East. You will have a half-day tour of Jerash with a private local guide.
A close second to Petra on the list of favourite destinations in Jordan is the ancient city of Jerash, which boasts an unbroken chain of human occupation dating back more than 6,500 years. Jerash lies on a plain surrounded by hilly wooded areas and fertile basins. Conquered by General Pompey in 63 BC, it came under Roman rule and was one of the ten great Roman cities of the Decapolis League.
The visible ruins of the city we see today are believed to represent only about 10% of the complete area of the original site, but with its triple-arched gateway and colonnaded streets, it is one of the archaeological highlights of the region.
