We visited Megido National Park as part of a tour of Israel. The ruins here are not much to see. There is an underground walkway that is interesting. The view from up top is amazing.

It's an archeologic site and there is not much (readible) information. It was boring for us and the kids. Only the watersystem was nice to see for us. Ofcourse there is a lot of history from way back till WO1.

We was there because is a UNESCO site and was in road from Tel Aviv to Nazareth. If you visit without information and a guide, this will be boring. I recommend to buy Orange Ticket, if you want to visit more National Parks in Israel. The history of the site is very interesting and it`s worth it with a guide.

absolutely incredible to me that so much history is stacked in one little mound (or Tel ) Wish we had more time here, but they do close quite early in the Winter. Definitely have a guide to show you around as you will otherwise miss out on lots of interesting info.

Megiddo is one of King Salomon's chariot cities and also the location of the last battle between good and evil according to the revelation of the Johannes in the new testament. It is a very interesting historical site, you have a few good guides there to explain you details of this ancient stronghold.

During the biblical period Megiddo was one of the most important cities in Israel. Its location allowed to control the valley of Iron, Jezreel and the way to the sea as an international route that linked Egypt and Mesopotamia. Many impressive archeological remains were found during extensive excavations during the last century, that shows the city's eminence during the Bronze... More

This is one of King Solomon's chariot cities. The stone manger is similar to what Jesus may have been laid in after his birth. There is remains of many horse stables. A bamah is present, a place for human sacrifice. The tel is 26 layers. A water system is available to walk through. This is also the presumed place of... More

This national Park is good for an hour of sightseeing. It’s about 1:20 from Tel Aviv on the way to Tiberias. The most interesting aspect is the water tunnel, which was dug with primitive tools to provide a secure water supply for the fortified city. You can walk through it.
