An excellent archaeological site of late Roman times- well preserved and restored - with the bonus of the original Tel with ruins dating back to the time of King Saul (mentioned in Samuel 2) and before. The pace is massive - but take care - Beit She'an is one of the hottest and most humid places in Israel. To do... More

If you are at all interested in ancient sites then Beit She'an is a destination that you should not miss on any trip to this part of the world. Very Well preserved ancient city despite its share of earthquakes. An extensive site so plan on a whole day out. Breathtaking views and some well-preserved mosaics. The amphitheatre is inspiring. Lots... More

An absolutely amazing archaeological site with a fascinating history. I highly recommended heading up the tel on the north side of the park for a view of the whole city, it's well worth the short climb! If you go in summer try to get there as soon as it opens as there is very little shade within the park itself.

The best Roman era site I have ever seen. The site itself has history dating from 6000 years ago, but thats hardly the focus. The site itself is restored very well, and has an excellent story to explain the ruins I wont spoil here. The site itself is massive, and features large columns, an ancient bathhouse, a theater, and the... More

The town you an see is so great band large compare to most escalated ruins in Europe. Over two thousand years old you can see old streets, fountains,public bathrooms , pools, famous enough Roman bath building with mosaic floors and underground heating system. Go on a top of the hill, or even better, start over there , and you will... More

This is a premier site - not only are these some of the best preserved Roman ruins in Israel, the history is fascinating as well. A visit to this Decapolis city is a must. We were there at opening time and had the entire place to ourselves.

I am biased as I volunteered at the excavations here when in college. I joined it specifically because it is the best preserved Roman city in Israel. I am pleased every time I go back just recently 2 months ago. It gives you the sense of what a Roman Imperial city looked like without the distraction of later buildings mixed... More

We love history, especially whn it comes to archaeologicaal sites of historical value here in Israel. We took a trip to Beit Shean National Park, climbed the Tell Beit Shean and then continued to a visit to the Ancienct synagogue of Beit Alpha. Beit Shean was a bustling city which was destroyed by an earthquake in the year 749 CE.... More

This Roman city is well preserved, with baths, amphitheatre, public square, shops and more. You still can see the ancient marble and mosaic lying on the floor and decorates the walls. There is a great promenade fro which you can experience most of the city. There's even a hill in the park that contains relics from over 5000 years ago.... More
