I just didn't understand how Jordan's capital It is considered a city of passage for most tourists. The Roman theater of Amman is one of the many things to see in this great city with so much history. A wonder where few foreign tourists are seen located in an area that eats phenomenal.

The Roman theater of Amman

It's 07:30 in the morning in Amman. The day dawns cool with a temperature of 3 degrees, but as the sun sets over the 7 hills, the temperature becomes pleasant. We take a taxi from the other end of the city, near the 7 circle, one of the gigantic links that communicate the city. Upon arrival at the Roman theater we pay the 5 JOD from the taxi and we go to the small booth where theater tickets are acquired. Are alone 2 JOD. This gives you access to both the Roman theater, two museums and the Odeon. The latter we will have to visit the first since in the theater they will requisition us the entrance.

The Odeon

The odeon is frankly well preserved, both its interior and the walls that cover the exterior. Perhaps the only downside is to find it somewhat slippery with the morning dew, but otherwise it is an incredible building.

The roman theater

He Roman theater of Amman It is simply huge. With capacity for more than 6000 spectators, it is really well preserved although there is some retouching that has been made recently and that is noticed too much by the material and colors used. Climbing it is a challenge, knowing that the steps are very worn and excessively inclined. In addition the test is not passed until we return, since getting off is the hardest part.
