Take a daytrip to Jerash

Amman makes a great base for exploring the rest of Jordan. For a lot of travellers, the biggest draw is the Unesco World Heritage Site of Petra. The ancient cave city, which featured in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, is a three-hour drive from the centre. If you’re short on time, check out the Roman city of Jesrah, which is closer.
