Amman is a lively cosmopolitan fascinating city of contrasts - a unique blend of old and new, ideally situated on a hilly area between the desert and the fertile Jordan Valley. Jordan is a land steeped in history and has truly world-class sights such as Petra (one of the seven wonders of the world), Wadi Rum, Jerash and the Dead Sea, which form part of the magic that is Jordan.
We very much look forward to welcoming you in Amman.
