Amman has a few experiences that require a little more effort to discover than others, but a visit to the city isn’t complete without taking in at least a few of them. Culture Trip’s curated list of luxury experiences in Amman will help you to enjoy the city and its surroundings in style.

As the capital and largest city in the country, Amman is Jordan’s cultural centre. Although a relatively young city in the Middle East, it’s also the home of some fascinating ancient ruins and landmarks. While visitors often use Amman as a pit stop on the way to Petra or the Dead Sea, this destination has a lot to offer of its own.

A great place to indulge in some good food, wine and pampering, Amman has a range of experiences to discover, from spas, vineyards and wine tasting, to private street food experiences and VIP travel. These recommendations have been handpicked so you can enjoy your visit just that little bit more.

With over 305 days of sun a year, a truly unique wine is produced.On this tour you will get to witness the Mafraq Plateu of Jordan, enjoy wine tasting on the Promenade located at the centre of our 110-hectare (270 acre) vineyard with a walk between the vines, and then a light lunch at our guest house with more wine, music and breathtaking views.
