Visit a traditional restaurant to savor an included Arabic mezze (assorted small dishes) lunch (depending on option selected), and explore colorful Rainbow Street, famous for its cafes, galleries, antique stores, and landmarks including the former home of King Talal.

Lastly, take in Amman's contemporary Swefieh and Abdoun districts. Drink in the buzzing atmosphere, and pause to see their glitzy shopping complexes including the Taj and Galleria malls.
