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 site is the largest of Israel's archeological digs. This ancient city, although destroyed by an earthquake in the 8th Century, offers a fabulous insight into. Roman life and times. After losing the battle to the Philistines, King Saul and his sons were hung from the city walls here.

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.

This site was an amazing tour into History and Truth of the Bible. Recall the story of King Saul and his son, Jonathan- Read 1Samuel 31 before you go. They were killed by the Phillisines at this site and their bodies were hung on a wall at Beit Shean. David had them taken down and properly buried.
Be sure to see the latrines here! There is a steep hill with path to climb where the probable walls of the city were, but we did not climb it, as there is much to see in the ruins below. It was February when we went- Not hot but in 60s. Recommend going to Israel November to April. Perfect temps. Summer can be over 100, it is a Desert.
