Howevers, visitors of Jordan speak highly of the wonder of the capital city of Amman, famous for its famous modern-meets-historic district of Jabal Amman, as well as its famous vibrant district of "Rainbow Street." Other major cities include Madaba, home to major historical artifacts from the Islamic, Byzantine, Hellenistic and Roman civilizations.
Queen Alia International Airport is considered the largest, busiest, and by far the most important in Jordan, though is is located in Zizya, over 20 miles from Amman.
