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

Impressive mosaics excavated from Roman homes and buildings. Paths with herbs along the way and signs with quotes from the Mishnah. Actors in period costumes demonstrating crafts and exchanging ideas current to the time period. The famous redactor of the Mishnah lived in Zippori and is honored in this park.

One of the most exciting places to visit in the Galilee. There are lots of mosaics dated to the Roman Empire era as well as town streets and other home elements. Do not miss the Nile house, Dionysus house and the synagogue. There is also a nice view from the top of the Crusaders fort. During last year the place... More

Tzippori National Park and Archeological Site, Tzippori was described by the first century C.E. Jewish historian, Josephus Flavius, as "the ornament of all Galilee." The city got its name from the Hebrew word "tsipor" (bird) because the view from the town gives one a sense of flying. Even after the seat of the Sanhedrin was moved to Tiberias, Zippori remained...

I've lived in Israel 30 years and only got to see this historical site this week. Zippori is layered history, starting before the Roman conquest up to Crusader times. It has the best in situ mosaics I've seen (most mosaics are scooped up and only shown in museums, where you totally miss the context of the artistic endeavor in its... More

Came here about 15 years ago and returned today. The visitors centre is not very impressive and if you are looking for food and drink bring your own. But the rest of the site is worth seeing, The first point of interest is the water cistern and tunnels which are located immediately to the left of the entrance gate -... More
