The Necropolis of the Galilean and the whole Jewish world in the 2nd-4th century CE when the Galilee was the center of Jewish life in the Holy Land. Nice place, good maintained.

Bet Shearim Park is a nice archaeology park site, with ancient, decorated tomb caves, old city gate and olive press. the site runs guided tours that tells the spacial story of the place. There are plenty of nice shaded sitting places and green lawn.

Parkland is beautiful. Excavations are shocking. Tombs and sarcoughogus' are intricate and plentiful. Amazing place to spend a hour or two.

A huge ancient cemetery with endless numbers of sarcophaguses. So many things you can learn from the writing and the decorations on almost each one of them. One of a lifetime experience!

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.
