While Jordan is small in size, it’s one of the treasures of the Middle East. Getting around to see all of its religious and archaeological sites is easy to do and gives you a chance to see everything you want during your stay in Jordan. The top tourist attraction — and for good reason — is Petra. This archaeological site is a city that was carved into the mountains during the 5th and 6th centuries, and because of its detail and beauty is considered one of the great wonders of the Middle East. Amman Citadel is another archaeological site with remains from a palace, churches and the Roman Temple of Hercules. It offers tourists a history lesson and remarkable views of the city of Amman. You’ll also want to see the ancient ruins in Jerash. Visit the ruins of an impressive Roman amphitheater from 2,000 years ago, along with other theaters and churches with gorgeous mosaics inside. Last but not least on your list of things to do is floating in the Dead Sea.
