About this activity
Meet your private driver at your central Amman hotel and board your comfortable, air-conditioned vehicle. Then, start out on your full-day trip to Umm Qais, home to the ruins of ancient Rome’s Decapolis cities — a group of 10 situated on the frontiers of the Roman Empire in the Middle East. First, venture northward through Jordan’s green landscapes to the village of Umm Qais, overlooking the ruins of another Roman Decapolis city known as “Gadara”. Soak up the views from here over the Sea of Galilee and Golan Heights to explore the Greco-Roman ruins, including the amphitheater, crumbled mausoleum, basilica terrace, as well as other theaters and treasures. Then, visit the town’s museum to admire some of the precious artifacts recovered from the site, including mosaics and marble statues.
 
Next, drive to Pella, the remains of a Hellenistic city, and earlier and later settlements. First mentioned as ‘Pihilum’ or ‘Pehel’ by the Egyptians in the 19th century B.C. Pella prospered when the Romans arrived, building temples, theaters, and baths. See the antiquities, some dating back more than 8,000 years. Journey back to Amman where your trip concludes with a hotel drop off.
