A stop on our holy land tour. Armegeddon. This says it all. The last battle. Good vs Evil. This place has seen a lot of battles and will see more but right now it is surrounded by beauty. Other than military jets flying over it was a very nice place. We also did the underground aqua duct which was nice... More

A very interesting place but the site claims its level of difficulty is easy - accessible for walkers and wheelchairs. Think twice. Also no wheelchair lift down to the water system as described in the site.

We watched an old video on the site before venturing out into the park. Learned that many battles have already been fought at this location. Also learned that there is thousands of years of history. Mind boggling for an American whose country history is only a small fraction of that. The view is absolutely beautiful when looking from on high... More

Megiddo or Armageddon is a sight not far from Nazareth that has huge historical significance from the past but also prophetically important for the future for Judaism and Christianity. The hilltop ruins give spectacular views over the valley of Jezreel and the evidences from archeology back to kings Solomon and Ahab help date the civilisations. The water tunnels are fascinating....

While riding on the bus on eventually see this mound rising from the valley of Armageddon. Megiddo is a state park that cost a few shekels to get in. It has a nice gift shop and very tasty food in the resturant. It is a short walk from the entrance to the site. As one walks up the road one... More

The scale model, signage and other "helps" have greatly improved the quality of the visit. My recollection from years ago was "a pile of rocks." It is now labeled and organized in a way that made it quite meaningful for me and my students.

We arrived at lunchtime and ate in their cafeteria. The food was pretty decent. I enjoyed exploring the Tell and seeing Solomon's Gate and stables. We excited through the water system (183 stairs down into the cistern, a walk through a tunnel, and then 80 stairs back up). This was very interesting, but not for the faint of heart of... More

At the entrance we were welcomed by a very nice guard. The site gave a good impression about the history of the Tell Megiddo. Also the fact that historical figures from the bible (kings Salomon and Achab) impressed us. And don't forget the sight on the plains of Yizreel. And that in the light of the Armageddon gave us a...
