Today we have a long but very exciting day in the north of Jordan. After an early breakfast, we get on our spacious bus and drive 50 km north, to Jerash, the city famous for its beautifully preserved Roman ruins. Gerasa (as Jerash was called in the Roman days) is a fantastic archaeological site that features several theatres and arches, a circus and a forum, the Corinthium Column, and two large temples dedicated to Zeus and Artemis. The city is often referred to as "Pompeii of the East" or "Antioch of the Golden River", and is also known as the home of Nicomachus, one of the greatest mathematicians in history. Once we finished our exciting walk here, we get back on our bus and drive further north to Ajloun - a small city best known for its Saracen castle. Saladin built this castle, during his successful campaign to drive the crusaders from Jordan in the 12th century. After a short stop, we proceed to lunch, and then move on to the northernmost areas of Jordan. Our destination is the dramatic black basalt Decapolis city of Um Qais (Gadara in the Bible), with its fine views overlooking the Golan Heights and Sea of Galilee. After touring these ruins and taking images in the sunset colours, we drive back to Amman
