A highlight of the north

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

Visiting the Roman Ruins of Beit She'an as part of a tour group one may see a modern city, the bedrock level and excavations of the Roman City from the 1st Century, then on the hill is the Tel - the ancient Philistine City. Rich in culture and history. Jesus may have walked in the Roman City as he visited... More

This place was one of my favorites as far as seeing the Roman influence in Israel. The view from the top of the mountain was breathtaking, and I can only image the impact this place had on the population at that time. Great place!

Beit She'an is a site of old cities developed over all periods of history - from ancient times, to Hellenistic, to Roman and so on. It has a range of great Roman remains with, for example, superb baths and an amphitheatre. It has so much artistry within its confines and is a treasure trove of remains discovered fairly recently through... More

Liked everything that I saw, how well the site is conserved. It was a revelation after a quake revealed the place. You can appreciate the bath houses.

I like this attraction very much because it shows how the Romans knew to enjoy life here in Israel. The bath house is huge and the streets of the city are very wide. it is possible to see a snapshot of the huge earthquake that ruined Beit She'an. When you reach the theater don't forget to try singing on the... More

I had not been to Beit Shean in well over 20 years- at that time, all I saw was the ancient roman amphitheater. On this trip ( thanks to overseas visitors, I took the opportunity to revisit several important sites with them). This is an amazing archeological site, impressive in scale and surrounded by breathtaking views. Easy to drive right... More
