The Roman Theater is a historic landmark from many thousands of years ago, a must go for Tourists and history lovers.
There's a regular large play and seating area in front of it with no entry fee needed.
A fee is required to go to the theater itself, only during the daytime. It is surreal experience sitting on the same place people of centuries ago sat on and going into the same halls as they did.
I very highly recommend coming here.

An amazing historical place, and you can climb the stairs of the Roman theater. At the top you can see the beautiful downtown of Amman. There is also a Folklore Museum on the first floor before entering the Roman Theater.

Spectacular both from a distance and up close inside. The vast theater is impressive. Great Roman architecture that gives you a view full of history.

The theater is still in regular use. The view from the top is amazing. . One of the must-see in Amman.

A really nice place to see. Amazing how well preserved the place is. Two small museums on the premises. Also a local market is 10 min walk away, and in the Roman Theatre complex there is also an Odeon. Nice place to come and visit

Massive amphitheatre which can accommodate 6000 viewers. Still in use occasionally. Just climb on steep steps up to the top of auditorium to enjoy breathtaking views of amphitheater and citadel in background. There is small amphitheater in the area and museum

A world cultural heritage site in the centre of Amman. An outstanding landmark of an incredible historical value built during the rule of the Roman Emperor Pius in the second century AD. A remarkable sunset. A great view from the top. Ticket costs only 3 JOD. Worth visiting!

The Roman Theater in Amman is an awe-inspiring testament to history and a must-visit for anyone exploring Jordan's rich heritage. From the moment you set foot in this ancient amphitheater, you're transported back in time to the grandeur of the Roman Empire.

The sheer scale of the theater is breathtaking, with its well-preserved architecture offering a glimpse into the past. The seating tiers provide a perfect vantage point to admire not just the structure itself but also the panoramic views of Amman's vibrant cityscape.

The historical significance resonates in every stone, and the informative signage helps unravel the story behind this marvel. Whether you're a history enthusiast or just someone seeking a cultural experience, the Roman Theater offers a captivating journey through time.

Its location within the heart of Amman makes it easily accessible, and the surrounding area, with its charming cafes and shops, adds to the overall experience. It's a testament to Jordan's dedication to preserving its historical treasures.

A visit to the Roman Theater is not just a touristic checkbox; it's an immersive encounter with the past that leaves you in awe of the ancient craftsmanship and the enduring legacy of Jordan's cultural heritage.

Lovely piece of antique culture. But it is better to observe it from the top. There is a lovely gallery, on the way to Citadel, with a cute terrace and a view ;)

It is a stunning place. The view from the bottom, looking at the grand theatre, is amazing; somehow, the view from the top is even better.

Some of the steps are quite high but most of them are normal height. They're not very slippery: however, comfortable and secure footwear is recommended to get to the top.

It’s crazy how this just sits in the city centre. Well worth the visit and the climb to the top for the view if you’re able.

Included with your Jordan pass.

A famous landmark to be visited in Amman. It dates back to the Roman period when the city was known as Philadelphia. Strongly recommended.

This Roman theatre has been beautifully restored, although not always with the original materials, but it is nevertheless impressive. The steps are fairly steep and irregular, so care needs to be taken.

In addition to the theatre itself there are two small museums either side of the entrance. Ticket prices are reasonable and the wait to buy them was short. Most definitely worth visiting.

It is in the Amman centre and if you have the Jordan pass it is free. There is a small local museum after getting in about the local daily routine of the people.

This is a place which you can expect in Jordan.
It’s huge and beautiful with the views if you go on to the top. The steps are little steep so be careful with that. The tree is a museum which includes the entrance purchase ( no ticket needed for Jordan pass).
This is a must go place in Amman.

The market is also very close to this place, after visiting you can walk to the market and enjoy the shopping.

Beautiful historical site in the city. It is well preserved. Jordan Pass is valid here.

One of the wonderful historical sites in Amman, Jordan.
A very impressive amphitheatre built into the rock face, opposite the citadel. There is a very nice guide who approaches you to tell you stories and myths about the theatre. Brilliant place to come right in centre of Amman. You can use your Jordan pass here to get in although we weren't asked for it. The theatre is now used as a venue for cultural activities including the Amman International Book Fair, the Amman Marathon prize ceremony, and musical concerts.
I strongly recommend visiting this place if you are in Amman.

Roman Theatre of Amman is a 6,000-seat, 2nd-century Roman theatre. A famous landmark in the Jordanian capital, it dates back to the Roman period when the city was known as Philadelphia. The theatre and the nearby Odeon are flanking the new Hashemite Plaza from the south and the east respectively, while the Roman Nymphaeum is just a short stroll away in north-westerly direction.

The Roman Theatre is located in the eastern part of the Jordanian capital, Amman. It is specifically at the foot of Jabal Al-Joufah, on a hill opposite the Amman Citadel. A Greek inscription on one of the pillars indicates that this theater was built in honour of Emperor Antoninus Pius (138–161 CE).

The large and steeply raked structure could seat about 6,000 people: built into the hillside, it was oriented north to keep the sun off the spectators

The theater was stunning. Climbing the stairs and spending ten minutes in the seats let us imagine what it would have been like.

It's just too bad we couldn't check out the smaller one.
