West Bank national park. Herod went big and went out BIG! This was his palace — one of them and also his burial. He is not buried there — they never found his remains when they dug but still ..... he was here. Worth the...More

This is where Herod the Great's tomb was found in 2007. On a clear day, you can see into Jordan, a sweeping view of Jerusalem and also Bethlehem. Climb through the tunnel system used by the Jewish Rebels and see the palace that Herod built....More

It begins with a short movie introducing the place - you can ask for the language, but I didn't ask if there are any other choices other than Hebrew and English - then you tour the place and see why Herod The Great is called...More

This is the first time we had gone here even though I've been to Israel a few times. It was very interesting but didn't have enough biblical content for what I like to see when I go. It's also extremely high up in a wide...More

The Herodian is worth a visit. Located near Bethlehem, it's well preserved, with excavation continuing. You can see it quickly in an hour, but you could spend 2-3 hours if you had the time. It's a Israeli National Park site, so, if you're planning on...More
