Megiddo National Park, Nazareth
(4.3/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
Take a tour of UNESCO-protected Megiddo National Park, an artificial hill formed by millennia of building and rebuilding in the same spot. The tell boasts 26 layers of ancient ruins, with the site dating back to 7000 BCE before being abandoned in the sixth century BCE. Besides being mentioned in a number of ancient Greek, Egyptian, and Roman writings, the mount is also the origin of the term “Armageddon,” as the apocalyptic battle is supposed to happen on this site, according to the Book of Revelations. Explore the historic complex and view an array of remains, some of them from the site's glory days during the Bronze Age. Megiddo National Park is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our custom trip planner, Nazareth Edition.

  • You'll take a walk back thousands of years and be amazed at how people built their cities on top of each other. There's an altar that dates back 5,000 years. The tunnel that was built to the spring is...  more »
  • An archaeological site that deserves to be seen, it is remarkable and it can be very nice photos... Gift shop, at the entrance of the site, which is well supplied and not expensive

  • Exciting excavations. We had only 30 minutes and had to rush something through. Wish we had had more time. To end the trip by going through the old water shaft, which is a hugely bold experience. It is also recommended to view the movie about the area they have, which lasts 10 min

  • We only toured the ruins and found the ancient history very interesting. Several people have said they had difficulty finding the ruins. Search for "Megiddo Ruins," the entrance is not far off the main road. There is a light colored stone wall with gold letters that reads "Tel Megiddo" and a smaller green sign past that as well. Go up the hill and you will find the visitor's center on the right.
  • Love this place. Excellent park for family trip.
  • Very important and interesting place!!!! מקום חשוב ומאוד מעניין!!!
  • Armageddon the real location awesome.
  • Very Disappointing Park. With nothing but ruins, the site is very bland leaving very little but imagination, especially with the high cost to enter. Would not recommend to my enemy.
