Explore the most photogenic aspects of Amman with Zohrab Markarian, official photographer of the late king of Jordan for 22 years.
Pack your camera, be it an iPhone or an SLR, for a photo-worthy tour of Amman with Zohrab Markarian, the former official palace photographer who accompanied His Majesty the late King Hussein bin Talal of Jordan for 22 years. Markarian has published 15 photography books and has seen his work featured in international exhibitions, as well as high-profile magazines such as Newsweek, Time and People. No one captures Amman’s beauty better than Markarian, and now, through an exclusive partnership with Four Seasons Hotel Amman, he’s letting you in on his trade secrets.
You’ll begin at the Hotel, where you will enjoy breakfast at Olea before meeting Markarian, who will lead you to some of Amman’s most picturesque landmarks, including the Old Souk and the 2,000-year-old Roman Theatre. Next, a stop at the Citadel in the heart of Old Amman offers a perfect opportunity to capture the mountain landscape. Finish your tour with stunning views of Old Amman’s architecture and a traditional Jordanian tea on the terrace of Darat al Funun in the Jabal al-L’weibdeh district, the artistic heart of the city. Throughout the tour, Markarian will share photography tips and local insights, all while capturing images of you and your experience.
