Originally built on seven hills, Jordanís capital and biggest city now spans over nineteen hills in north-western Jordan. A cosmopolitan city of around 3 million, Amman offers everything from shopping malls to ancient Roman ruins, and some of the grandest mosques in the Middle East. The cooling effects of its location on a plateau allows Amman to enjoy four seasons of excellent weather. Frequent bus connections to other cities in Jordan as well as to major cities in neighboring countries make Jordan a great jumping-off point to visit other countries in the region.
The bustling urban area includes the Old City, centered around the Souk (colorful traditional market) and the King Hussein Mosque. There you can explore the capital's greatest souqs, fine museums, ancient constructions, monuments, and cultural sites.
