Sophistication and high living mark Amman as one of the most modern Middle Eastern cities, yet it’s also one of the region’s most history-rich destinations. The Citadel, with its early Bronze Age tombs dating back to 3300 BC, is a 15-minute drive from downtown, but many sites are a few hours outside the city. Petra is a four-hour drive south, but as one of the New Seven Wonders of the World, it should not be missed. This 2,000-year-old rose-red city carved from sandstone cliffs reflects the same blend of Arabesque and European influences that give Jordan its refined distinction. On the drive back north to Amman, the Dead Sea offers a chance to experience the lowest point on earth and the rejuvenating powers of a salty soak. The best shopping is back in the city where designer boutiques in Sweifieh, Jabal al-Hussain and Abdoun and the fabulous Mecca Mall are on a par with the best of Paris. Return to the hectic, bargain-friendly style of Middle Eastern shopping at the Gold Souk, where you can take the magic home in a piece of handcrafted Jordanian jewellery.
