This site is for the ancient history buff. The work that has been done is amazing and it is an all inclusive city. It was hot, dusty and time consumptive. All the National Parks are well done.

An amazing Roman city with a rich history and culture. Very interesting even for young children. Better with a guide or written explanations. Beware - extremely hot in the summer.

If you see one archeological site in Israel it should be here. It’s a huge site with Roman ruins and an amphitheater but also a large Tel with remnants from many civilizations.

This is one of those places that reminds you who the real ruler is of the universe. By God's providence this site has been preserved throughout the Egyptian, Biblical, Babylonian, Hellenistic, and Byzantine periods. About a block long but packed with beautiful artifacts and finds.

I think might try contacting hotels in the area. For example, there is a youth hostel in Bet She'an You might want to stay over one night, which of course could make it even easier
