To see Amman in one day, start at Rainbow Street, one of the most popular locales filled with cafes and galleries. Grab a cup of java at Books@Café, a trendy café/bookstore with a terrace view, then head to the Jordan River Foundation for some souvenirs. Stop by its neighbor, Balian, for an exquisite range of hand-made ceramics. Later on, take any of the dozens of steps leading downtown to the Gold Souk, then head for the Roman theater. Don’t miss the Citadel nearby for a glimpse of history embedded in ruins and a palace. Finish things off with a falafel sandwich at Hashem, followed by sweets from its neighbor Habiba.
