This is a very nice archeological site that is historical and informative of an ancient world. Scenic and great to photograph. But, be aware that this area is hot, hot, hot. Prepare for heat and walking on mostly uneven surfaces.

Bet She'an National Park houses the spectacular ruins that was the Roman and Byzantine city of Bet She'an. Rising above them is the high mound on which Biblical Bet She'an stood. Not much shade so bring a hat/umbrella, water, sun screen.

We finally visited this park after many years of talking about it, but once there, wondered why we hadn't visited before. It is a wonderfully restored archaeological site, mainly from the Roman times. The site is about half again as large as Corinth in Greece....More
