Two half-days in Amman, Jordan - what to do?

Jump to last reply

We're adding 4 days in Jordan to the end of our Egypt trip in May 2008. My focus has been on Egypt up to this point so now I'm trying to quickly catch up with Jordan info before we go.

Our tour gets us to the hotel in Amman (flight arrives 10:45 a.m.) and then you have the rest of the day free.

The next 2 days you visit Jerash and then Petra.

The final day we're alone all day -- flight out is not until 8:45 p.m.

So I'm trying to figure out for the half day after arrival and the final day -- what would be best to do with our time?

If we take a taxi from our hotel to the Citadel area are the sites there all within walking distance? Could we spend a half day seeing the Temple of Hercules, National Archeological Museum, Roman theater? And would it be possible to get a taxi back to the hotel from there?

We could do that either the first day there or the last.

What about a trip to the Dead Sea - would doing that the first day we arrive be possible if we get to the hotel close to noon (hopefully earlier)? Would that work combined with a stop in Madaba or do you need more time to do both? Should I set this up with a guide in advance or would the hotel (Crown Plaza Amman) be able to arrange that kind of thing?

Another thing that I'm considering is the Turkish hammam -- that sounds very interesting and maybe a good way to spend a free half day.

Any advice would be very much appreciated!
