About Al-Wakalat Street Amman

Amman's very first pedestrian street, Al-Wakalat, was renovated with pebbled walkways lane and plants in 2007. What was once a busy motor road filled to the brim with parked cars has been turned into a safe and relaxing walking space full of shops and arcades. Indeed, your visit to Amman will miss the beat if not shopped at this ravishing popular street.
