Flight Lyon - Amman

As a city of contrasts, Amman is located to the North-West of Jordan, between the Dead Sea and the desert. Founded over 9,000 years ago, it is a true delight to visit for anyone who love archaeological vestiges. From up top its 7 hills - known as the Jabals - the white city of Amman will no doubt fascinate you with its warm and welcoming culture, halfway between tradition and modernity.
