This tour visits several of the most important archeological sites in Israel, giving you the chance to walk among the excavations and see the remains of several civilizations, including those of the Romans, Egyptians, Canaanites, Israelites and Assyrians.


At the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Megiddo, you'll behold the ivory palace where the world's richest Canaanite treasure was discovered. Other points of interest include stables from King Ahab's time and a fascinating system of waterworks that leads to several springs. You'll also enjoy a leisurely lunch in Megiddo.


Then, there's Beit She'arim National Park, where the remains of the ancient Jewish city and the underground Jewish cemetery are revealed. The necropolis contains large stone coffins decorated with Jewish symbols and inscribed in Hebrew, Aramaic, Palmyran and Greek, shedding light on what life was like during this period of time.
