Departure Time

9:00 AM
After hotel pickup in Amman, travel north to ancient Al Salt, once earmarked as a capital of Jordan.

Built on hills, Al Salt was ruled by the Romans and Byzantines before enjoying prosperity under the Ottomans from the 1890s to the 1920s. Today, Christian and Muslim communities live here in harmony, with mosques and churches sitting side by side.

Meet a local guide and follow the ‘Harmony Trail’ through the yellow sandstone Ottoman-era buildings and streets. Hear about Al Salt’s past from your guide, and visit the museum at the Abu Jaber House. Admire the grand house, built by a wealthy merchant in 1892, and chart the town’s history through the exhibits.

Stroll through Al Ein Plaza, the main square, and visit the English Evangelical Hospital Complex for views over the old quarter, with its higgledy-piggledy rooftops, churches, and mosques.

See the 19th-century Qaqish House, with its high arched windows, and take in the Great Mosque, dating to the 14th century. View the Dormition of Virgin Mary Orthodox Church School, and wander around the Al-Khader Orthodox Church, one of the oldest shrines in the area, and used by Christians and Muslims. Then, visit the Madafat Al Khalili, a traditional family meeting place replete with decorative interiors.

Afterward, visit a traditional home for a simple-but-tasty local lunch. Savor a dish like magloubah (layers of rice, vegetables and chicken) and a sweet treat. Learn about traditional Jordanian cooking and spices, and watch a demonstration of how traditional garments are worn, trying them on if you wish.

Finally, amble down Al-Maidan Street, passing the Latin Church Complex and entering Al-Hammam Street, the main market street. Enjoy free time to peruse the bustling food, spice, and crafts stalls, and snap up some souvenirs (own expense).

Your tour ends with a hotel drop-off in Amman.

passed down through generations. Visit the Great Mosque, which was once the oldest mosque in the city, was originally constructed in the 13th century and was later rebuilt in 2007 in Al Ain Plaza, the center of the city, reflecting a mix of modern and traditional architecture. As a town that appreciates interfaith coexistence, the stairs of the mosque lead to the church of the Good Shepherd.

Visit Hammam Street, the main shopping district in As-Salt for over 150 years. Built between 1881-1884, Hammam Street is a pedestrian zone, paved to resemble the old main street. Walk Al-Eskafyeh Street, a short street that connects Hammam Street to Al-Khader Street. Eskafi means shoemaker in Arabic, where the role of the shoemaker doesn’t just exist in children’s books: he is still very much in business on the Al-Eskafyeh stairs, making and repairing shoes. As-Salt has preserved and supported its independent local business owners, holding on to its economic originality with different sweet shops, butchers, perfumeries, nuts shops, and spice shops. Enjoy free time to peruse all these shops, and snap up some souvenirs (at your own expense). Optional lunch at a local restaurant or home-made visit experience for an authentic meal. Your tour concludes with a hotel drop-off in Amman.
