We did not expect such an engaging visit but in the heat our 12 and 10 year old girls lasted over 3 hours without complaint. Fabulous mosaics and the explanations were clear in English as well as Hebrew and Arabic (in parts).

We are lucky to live close by the Zippori National Park. We have been following the findings at this impressive site since the previous century. The mosaics at the roman villa as well as the ones outside are stunning and give a good impression of life at ancient times. Whenever we have guests from abroad or from other areas in... More

The attraction itself is worth 5 stars in my opinion - the mosaics are so beautiful. It's interesting to see the differences between them, from the simpler, large-pieced geometric mosaics, seen mostly outside in the exposed rooms of the ancient town, to the intricate pictures made of tiny pieces inside of the structure. There is a mosaic of a young... More

Definitely worth the visit if you're into archaeology and the history of the area. One of the best examples of mosaics in Israel!

This is an important, historical site with great ruins. It is a bit less known but worth it a visit. The mosaic floors were amazing, bring a camera for sure.

This site is very nice and interesting to visit. Several roman villas and lots of beautiful ancient mosaics. The aqueducts are also very interesting, the place is beautiful to visit but YOU NEED A TORCH because you can go underground to walk the original tunnel. If you are claustrophobic you shouldn't try because in a group you wont be able... More

The place is rather beautiful on top of the mountain with a good view on the surrounding. The Mosaics are worth seeing. The city layout is well preserved especially the roads and the theater. Worth a visit

Stunning mosaics and archeological findings from the Roman and Byzantine periods. Pity no English speaking tour but an interesting short English movie presentation is available on request at the curio shop for no extra charge. Also a fun walk through the underground water tunnel. Worth a visit.

I was very happy to visit Zippori National park, an important and significant archaeological site from the time of the Talmud and the Roman occupation of the land. The excavations are impressive- the revealed mosaics are especially worth it. There is a lot to see. It is well preserved. There is a fair amount of walking, but it is not... More
