Very interesting place about the early Jewish settlement in Israel. In this place you can see burial caves and Sarcophagus and get explanation of the area.

First class archeological site quite well mantained. Plenty of space to visit and to walk. Caves are stunning and few of them are accessible. Kids will enjoy acting like Indiana Jones...The site is also suitable for picnic and lunches.

Beit Shearim is a remarkable, historical site that is completely surrounded by a beautiful national park. There are dozens of burial caves to explore and to learn about the various ancient practices of this once-thriving Jewish community.

Very special place. Great for a hot summer day or a cold rainy one since the underground caves keep permanent nice temperature all around the year. Great exploring and fun for kids and interesting fro adults. A nice visit will take 1-2 hours.
