This site is one of the best supported in the region, with good informational displays, signposts, an interesting museum, etc. However, I was disappointed by the emphasis on the Israelite period, from around 11th century BCE until the site was abandoned in the 5th century BCE. This city's biggest historical significance stems from the Canaanite period in the Late Bronze... More

Megiddo is one of the best maintained National Park sites in Israel and was a nice surprise. It is relatively easy to wander through the levels of several cities and at the top you are rewarded with a pleasant view of the valley back toward Mt Tavor. Lots of ultralights, balloons, and other air activity while we were there. Our... More

When visiting Israel, be sure to go to Megiddo National Park. The site is incredible with many different levels of civilizations. It is in excellent shape and well cared for. There are nice steps up to the top of the Tel and several places for groups to sit and hear from their tour leaders. The stairs down into the well... More

This is a huge site covering many excavations. Signposted, there are even some places with a shade on remote parts of it, quite neccessary as it may get very hot in summer. Take a hat and water with you, we saw one lady faint from the heat. At the end, there's the awesome tunnel.

This sight is amazing.....complete with visible layers of history, archaeological mistakes, ancient stables, silo (tax collection), city walls, gates, and an incredible underground water system. Be sure to get a guide for a better understanding.

you need time to visit this place. not recommended if you are in a rush. be sure to walk the water tunnel and allocate time so that you can walk in a leisurely pace as there are plenty of steps in the tunnel.

We didn't spend a great deal of time at this place, shame, I would loved to have seen more or spent longer viewing things. Our own tour guide was very knowledgeable about the park, and showed us, with brilliant explanations, the main features. A short video begins the exploration at Megiddo. Well worth seeing.

Nice bus ride to get to the Israel state park. Cost very little to get in. A very nice intro movie to give some helpful information. Easy walk to the sight. Megiddo looks over the Valley of Armageddon. It is a great view. One important thing about Megiddo is the visit to the fresh water spring. There are many steps... More
