Side Trips from Amman Sights

Roman Army and Chariot Experience

  • Archaeological Site/Ruins

Fodor's Review

This Hippodrome experience is not to be missed. It might sound cheesy but the presentation, in which about 25 men dressed in full gladiator regalia explain how and why gladiators fought is entertaining, educational, and interactive—much more than just a reenactment. The small museum at Jerash is informative, too, with good English signage; admission is included.
