We will visit this ancient Crusader city, and admire its amazing architecture. The local market boasts a beautiful variety of aromas and tastes, and adjacent to the market in the heart of the old city we'll visit a very impressive Mosque.
Many an epic event from the Bible took place in this area. During the Jewish periods of Judges, and later at the time of the united Jewish kingdom, Barak's battle with Sisra, the defeat of the Midianites by Gideon, the Philistine war against King Saul, and the story of Navot and King Ahab, all took place in this famous beautiful valley.
In this town of the Mishnaic and Talmud period, and up to the Roman occupation, we will visit an ancient synagogue that contains adepiction of the Zodiac.
We will see the ancient Nile House villa, still adorned with abundant Mosaics, some almost intact. We'll walk in the Cardo and in Decumanus style streets with their engraved depictions of the Roman games and we will see the ancient water system that fed the Roman splendor of this town.
This city of the Roman period enjoyed all the amenities of the ancient world: We will see the remains of the bath house, theatre, temple, elaborate central water fountain, and many other luxuries offered to their wealthy inhabitants.
A city turned Necropolis, a burial city. We will see part of hundreds of Sarcophagi in the numerous burial caves in this area. Here also lies Judah haNasi, leader of the Sanhedrin in Beit She'arim and Tzipori.
Beit She'arim is also home to the famous statue of Alexander Zeid, founder of Hashomer, a Jewish defense organization, to safeguard the Jewish agricultural settlements in Palestine. He was murdered on this land.
