Jerash is simply beautiful, the Cardio maximus and its perfectly preserved colonnades allows you to go back two thousand years as if you were walking with the Romans.
The amphitheatre looks ready to hold a concert, walk up the steps and look down but be careful as steps are steep and small. It is definitely worth a visit but beware of the guides as what they deem a tip is extortionate.
After a 30 minute or so tour where our guide barely showed interest we gave him a 3 dinar tip ($5 US) to which he replied this would hardly buy me a pack of cigarettes and proceeded to pester that we should give him a minimum of 10 dinars ($14 US). I put him in his place the rude ungrateful guy.

Jerash is a must see site if you're in Jordan. The city is around half an hour from Amman and is pretty much fully intact thousands of years later. There are roads, amphitheaters, and so much more to see within.

Jerash as a city has a lot to offer. Scenery is great, especially in winter and spring. There are also a number of good restaurants around the ruins, namely the Lebanese House (these are others but this is the one I've been to several times and can recommend!).

It is really worth to drive to Jerash to see the ruins of this Roman city. The site is enormous, so please take sufficient time. Don't forget sun-protection.

Just visited this site and I was very impressed with the magnitude of the site and architecture. The stone work was very beautifully done. It is a good place to view history and get a feel for what life may have been like back then. I was disappointed in the lack of sign boards introducing what I was looking though. It would have been helpful to have more throughout the site. Well worth the time though and the best time seems to be early evening.

Weather you like history or not this is a must! One of the most spectacular ruins I have seen in my life. You have to take a guide in order to make you understand the space and very thing around it
