With everything from live people playing the part of ancient shepherds, weavers, etc. to an authentic 1st century meal, Nazareth village was an enlightening experience into ancient culture and daily living. I highly recommend it!

Great spot to get a taste of what Biblical life was like. Tour was about 45 minutes and well worth it. See ancient food production - carpenter / builder - shepherds.
