  • The atmosphere is probably amazing and very special on this site as you are close to Syria and of Israel. The remains are in superb condition and the restaurant is absolutely awesome. You will eat excellent cuisine in a wonderful setting, either on the terrace if you aren't like me last winter! Or inside with these large windows. The atmosphere has something Italian and of refined but food is typically Jordanian and delicious enjoy!

  • This little museum is devoted to artifacts recovered within Umm Qays. It is being refurbished at the time of writing with an expected reopening sometime early 2018.
  • To walk among the ancient ruins, makes me feel like I was playing Diablo 2 back in my childhood.
  • Great historical place for Roman civilization, black stones and buildings, view for taparya lake, cross point for Jordan, Palestine and Syria
  • A great panoramic view of Gollan hills
  • Nice place for a visit. It's beautiful and the museum is good. Worth a visit.

Where to stay in Umm Qais

Visitors come to Umm Qais almost exclusively on day trips, as few accommodations exist in the immediate area. About 125 km (77 mi) to the south, the capital of Amman offers an extensive range of hotels, as well as a good selection of rental apartments that cater to different budgets and tastes. Alternatively, you can explore campsites and guesthouses in the town of Ajloun, about 60 km (37 mi) to the south. If your plans include crossing into Israel or Golan Heights, nearby towns just over the border have rooms and guesthouses.
