Jerash is an amazing blend of Greco-Roman and Oriental influences. A great place to visit during the spring with its beautiful rolling hills and lush greenery, Jerash has a rhythm not seen anywhere else in Jordan. Also, every year Jerash hosts the Jerash Festival of Culture and Arts, a three week summer program filled with folk dance, music, and theatrical performances.
From Amman: The drive north from Amman takes 40 minutes at a leisurely speed. You’ll know you’ve arrived when you see the magnificent arches of Hadrian’s Gate.
