Full description
After pick up from your Amman hotel, set off into the bustling Jabal Amman district. If there’s something you want to see more of the same area, tell your escort as your itinerary can be tailored around you as it’s a private and personal tour. Head for Rainbow Street, a road that encapsulates Amman’s energy and arts scene. Stroll by bookshops, cafés, and 1920s villas. Pause at the Rainbow Theater and traditional Al Pasha Hammam bathhouse. Savor some street snacks or breakfast such as a “falafel sandwich” (deep-fried chickpea patty) or “kunafa”, a local cheese-filled pastry encrusted with pistachios. Explore Malouf Street, nicknamed “Souk Jara”, known for its summer market (Operational on Fridays). Visit Jordan River Designs and Bani Hamida, two local crafts galleries. You may saunter down Mango Street, past the historical buildings of the Royal Film Commission, Nabad Gallery, and Books@Cafe. Browse the handmade goods at Wild Jordan, and artisans’ hotspot of Beit Shocair. Break up your exploring with free time to souvenir-shops. If you are interested in a street food experience on this walking tour it can be arranged for you to try some of the most famous street food shops like Abu Jbara for Falafel, to be paid by you directly in distention by you. Set off into Jabal Al-Weibdeh by vehicle, one of Amman’s oldest and hippest districts. Hear about Al - Weibdeh’s history, and learn why it’s emerging as an artistic hotspot. Stroll the winding streets, admiring the stone buildings and leafy lanes, and tune into the area’s contemporary art scene. Visit the trendy art galleries (at your own expense) showcasing the city’s contemporary art. Absorb the creative vibe at the Jordan National Gallery of Fine Arts, and Makan Arts Space, an alternative arts venue. Admire the Arabic art at Darat Al Funun gallery, set in three 1920s villas; and visit Dar El Anda, another arts hub inside a historical building. See the National Museum Park and visit the Paris Circle, the heart of Weibdeh. Take in the pretty park in this lively square, and learn how it got its French name. Upgrade for Lunch: Enjoy a home-cooked lunch at Café Najla or similar, a local authentic trendy restaurant serving traditional Jordanian cuisine. Upgrade to Amman Citadel and Roman Theater: Choose to continue by vehicle to downtown Amman’s markets, and if you wish, visit the Roman Theatre and Amman Citadel with Local Guide. Your tour ends with a hotel drop-off, or an optional central drop-off that lets you continue exploring independently. Alternatively, your guide will provide directions back to your hotel.
