Brit She'an was once a thriving and rich Roman city of over 50,000 people. Recent restoration (last 10 years) has uncovered an arena, government buildings, Main Streets with pillars, public baths, public baths, wide streets with sewage and running fresh water, amazing tile work and so much more. Most of this has been found and restored in the last ten... More

This is one of the most important historical sites in all Israel. The different civilizations that have developed on top of each other on this site give a fascinating insight into their life and times. The site is huge and oozes history. It is usually very hot so take water and a hat. Don't rush and try singing in the... More

The Romans surely had their architectural skills to build cities and leave a legacy behind. This place is one such monumental marvel. One has to visit the place with a very good guide to understand the 2000 plus history of this place. Summer days are bad however it is a must when you visit Israel.

and then Egyptians, Canaanites, Greeks, Romans, Byzantians, etc... The park represents mainly the Roman city, amazingly preserved; excavated/restored not so long ago. Roman theater, main street. baths, market, whatever! Even a Roman public toilet - an exhibit, not for use :-) (NB! The modern and usable one is only near the entrance and somewhat hidden, take it into account). Mosaics... More

Beit Shean has a long history which goes far back into Prehistorical times because of its very important location between valleys connecting the North and South, and the East and West. But, as far as History is concerned, you can see remains of two main periods: the Canaanite/Israelite period, and the Roman/Byzantine period. The visit is thus split into two... More

We were surprised to see another large Roman site. They sure were masterful builders. This is an interesting and well preserved site. It was interesting to see the model of the city in its heyday, very impressive.

I had thought I knew the existence of most of the Roman ruin sites, so this one came as a complete surprise when we visited on a tour. It was the name Beit Shan national park that threw me. To arrive and find this amazing ruin made my day. I found the lovely mosaics a treat, to see that someone... More

Rare historical place known from 6th century BC. There is Romanian city with amphitheater for 7000 persons. Perfect place for tourists and for families with children.

My husband and I visited the sound and light show at night. Various effects were used to bring the archeological site to life. There were a lot of children in the group, and the guide involved them in the tour. This is a great way to see the archeological park in Beit Shean while involving the intense heat that is... More

While touring Israel, this is always one of our favorite stops! The archeological finds are just amazing. Wondering the streets and exploring the city is awesome. And, when you're done, make sure to enjoy a magnum bar from the gift shop, it's the frozen treat of choice for us while in Israel. They're made differently in the US, so don't... More
