Because Amman was built on seven hills, most streets are very steep. As a result it is not a very walkable city, except if one remains downtown at the bottom of the valley, or if one is walking downhill! Therefore, taking taxis is a must and fortunately, there are plenty of them. Attached is a photo of a typical steep street in Amman.

It is also hard to find ones' way -- due to those steep hills, most roads have to zigzag their way up to reach the top of the hills. Amman's streets are, therefore, as confusing as a bowl of spaghetti with seven heaps.
