One of the finest preserved Greco-Roman cities in the Middle East and within easy reach of Amman, this truly is a place to let your imagination run wild and to lose yourself in history. The city has been continually inhabited for the past 6,500 years. Conquered by Pompey in 63BC the Roman era is brought vividly back to life in regular re-enactments of chariot-racing and gladiator duels put on at the newly restored hippodrome. (This should really appeal to children of all ages.)
