Megiddo, Armageddon, is a biblical site and an historic landmark. The beginning of the end happens here. For tourists, the view is beautiful and the history is fascinating. It is a little athletic but worth it.

The history of Megiddo goes back to at least the 15th Century BC. This area was the crossroads between Egypt and Mesopotamia. Megiddo is the location in Revelations where the battle of armageddon will take place. There is much to see and ponder here.

Megiddo is easily accessable from both Tel Aviv and Haifa. There is no problem whatsoever to visit it alone, if you go to the museam first, and get a right impression what you are going to sea further. This done, you may... More
