Rabbah : Michelin's recommendations
From the top of one of the jebels on which the city was initially built, there are fine views over Amman, the capital of Jordan. This huge modern urban sprawl is home to half the Jordanian population as a result of massive expansion since the mid-20C. Only downtown, the city centre, and its neighbouring districts retain any traces of the ancient Philadelphia, which stood here until the 13C: a theatre, citadel, Umayyad palace… not forgetting the collections of the archaeological museum.
