Roman cities are not exactly a rarity around the Mediterranean Sea, but Jerash, for its size and preservation is a must see.

Close to Amman, it's easy to visit and IT surely deserves the trip. Not only many of the old structures are very well preserved, but it is possible to see the evolution of the city from its Roman origins (also with a few older remains) to its destruction by an earthquake in the 8th century, and some adding of christian constructions. However, the most remarkable element is the oval square, once the roman forum!

    You used to be able to crawl down into a hole and explore the water distribution system, or was it the sewer!!
