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.

Because of our reservation at Nazareth Village, we didn't have time to see all of the park. But what we were able to explore was pretty incredible and had amazing views. I would recommend a few hours or half day for a full visit.

Well worth a visit to get a sense of history and the change that fell across the land over thousands of years of history. Megiddo as you see it offerers a fascinating glimpse into the fortified city during the reign of Ahab. To see the size of the buildings and stables is very interesting (and striking against the more ordinary... More

You'll take a walk back thousands of years and be amazed at how people built their cities on top of each other. There's an altar that dates back 5,000 years. The tunnel that was built to the spring is worth seeing but it takes a lot of walking. There's a lunch buffet, souvenir shop and jewelry store on site.

Megiddo (or Armageddon) is a fairly impressive tel. It dates back to the ancient Canaanites and beyond, but has also been occupied by the Egyptians, Assyrians, Biblical Israel and more. Decent views of the countryside. A little pricey.
