Attractions and things to do in Amman

Amman is a city steeped in history and culture, so we highly recommend a trip to the Amman Citadel complex and the 6,000-seat Roman Amphitheatre. The Royal Automobile Museum is an interesting stop for car enthusiasts and art lovers will appreciate the National Gallery. When you return to Mövenpick Hotel Amman, the refreshing poolside is waiting for you.

Keen shoppers will be in their element in Jordan’s capital. Amman Mall is walking distance from Mövenpick Hotel Amman, while Galleria Mall, Taj Lifestyle Mall and Mecca Mall (with its 6-screen cinema) are just a short drive away. For souvenirs and Jordanian ceramics, spend an afternoon browsing the lively stores of Rainbow Street or the Al Afghani Bazaar.
