Depart Amman North to Ajlun Castle, an Islamic fortress which is a mere 16 km from Jerash. The castle is located on the top of a mountain just outside the small city of Ajlun. It is an interesting maze of passages and levels, and offers a wonderful view of the surrounding area, northwestern Jordan, and off into Galilee. Continue to the ruins of Jerash, one of the Middle East’s best examples of a Greco-Roman provincial city.  At the entrance of the site, admire Hadrian’s Arch, built in 129 AD to mark Emperor Hadrian’s visit, and the Hippodrome, a partially restored Roman-era stadium. Once inside, accompanied by a private, local guide, wander the colonnaded streets and discover its most important monuments: Temples, Theaters, Baths, Oval Plaza, Nymphaeum, along with several Byzantine churches dating from the Christian era.  Return to Amman.

Pick up from Amman at 9:00 am in a private vehicle and start the tour. Depart north to explore the castle of Ajlun, once the center of Saladin’s governorate; a towering fortress , and one of the best preserved examples of the medieval Arab/Islamic military architecture in the entire Middle East,  located on a hilltop that once dominated the Northern Jordan Valley. Afterwards discover the Greco – Roman city of Jerash ( the Pompeii of the East ) with a local private guide; it’s Oval Plaza, it’s Temples, Theaters and Byzantine churches. Your driver will then take you back to Amman. Entrance fees are included in the tour.
