Beit Shean or Nisa Scythopolis is probably the most picturesque ancient site in Israel. It has columns restored, a Roman theatre, a huge Tel which is 5000 years of civilisations built one upon the other and super views from the top.

We visited the Bet She’an National Park on a Saturday morning as part of a 3 bus tour group from the U.S. Our visit started with a walk to an amphitheater. Along the way, one of our tour guides provided some background on the city....More
We did this trip asinfependant travellers. There are no guides to explain the context of what you are seeing and so it was left for us to see what we could with a two page pamphlet. A great shame no one could be bothered to...More

This site is a real treasure for those who love ancient Roman ruins, but one would gain the most by doing a tour with a guide. Even without a guide, there were signs and a helpful booklet for purchase. Take care because the sun is...More
This was my second visit here -- I had last been here in 1977/78 when I lived in Bet She'an at Kibbutz Shluchot as a volunteer and ulpan student. Much more has been uncovered/dug up since that time.

We did it with a tour group so they know what is safe & what is not. Most of the time we were on a normal bus but we also used an armoured bus in the dangerous areas. This was a safe area but Jericho was not & the 2 areas are not that far apart. My tip would be to speak to a local guide as things can change very quickly there.
