A place where successive civilizations were built on top of each other going all the way back to ancient Egyptian times when Egypt controlled the area. A decapolis city and where King Saul's body was hung on the wall after he died. A great archaeological site with mind-blowing history.

What a fantastic place to visit! I was not prepared to find such a well-preserved Roman city outside of Italy. Come to find out it is THE best preserved Roman city outside of Italy. The cardo is amazing, as well as that amphitheater. In addition, I found the columns that are just toppled over in place really fascinating. Be sure... More

A giant earth movement buried this roman city , consequently it is extremely well preserved. You need a minimum of 45 min but an enthusiast could spend all day, there is so much to see. There is a model at the entry and a cool seating area inside.

Wow. Very well maintained. The tile flooring is amazing. Somewhat surreal to walk down the Cardo where people were buying and selling 2500 years ago.

After entering the Park through the turnstyles of the Park entrance (restrooms and gift shop, too) be sure to view the table model of the entire complex for a very helpful overview. Then on to the impressive and large main street (Palladius) with many pillars standing. Extends from the entrance to the foot of Tel (hill). Street is roughly 75... More

This is truly an amazing experience. The area has been reconstructed so that visitors can see the amphitheater as it was in roman times with all the associated areas (bathing, bathrooms, meeting rooms, etc. In front of each area is a post with buttons which you press to hear an explanation in english or Hebrew. Gruides are also available upon... More

Being at Beit She'an felt like we had entered a time machine and landed in the 1st century. Walking down what would have been the main street was fascinating as we saw the huge stone pillars that once graced the streets. The amphitheater was remarkable as was the technology for that time in history. There still remains a treasure trove... More
