Beit Shearim, Kiryat Tivon
(4.7/5 based on 75+ reviews on the web)
Explore the most extensive Jewish cemetery in the world at the ancient town of Beit Shearim. Now a World Heritage Site, in the 2nd century the area offered sanctuary to Jews exiled from Jerusalem by the Romans. Excavations in the area have unearthed around 30 catacombs carved into the soft limestone. As you explore the site, you'll have a chance to go underground into the burial caves and follow dramatically lit hallways adorned with impressive symbols, inscriptions, and figures. As you delve into the burial chambers, you'll learn about the fascinating history of the town, which spans two centuries. In one of the burial caves, you will find a small museum exhibiting finds from the area.
