Day 3 – September 17th – Jerash and Amman
Enjoy a last dip in the Dead Sea before heading north through the Jordan Valley to the ruin city of Jerash. These well preserved ruins were once the ground pillars of a Roman Decapolis city built approximately in 330 BC.  In its peak the city flourished from trade with the Nabateans from Petra and was one of the most important cities in the Roman province.  In 747AD Jerash was hit by an earthquake and slowly the city was abandoned.  As the years went by sand covered the columns and buildings, which is why everything was so well preserved when a Russian expedition excavated the city in 1878.  After our visit in Jerash we drive to Amman and check in at our hotel. 
Breakfast this day.
