    If you want to have a feel of the city large and commercial of the time of Mary we must visit Sepphoris or Zippori (as is otherwise called). Here Jewish and Christian are fully visible important findings. The synagogue mosaics represent the zodiacal signs and figures quite alien to Jewish culture and this shows that Sepphoris was a route from populations of different culture and religion. The Roman Theatre and the beautiful mosaic, ripped through in several places by the earthquake, which represented the Nile and the tool to measure the ability to irrigate the fields and the resulting tax farmers.

    Quite a site. You can get a good feel to how the historic city thrived and also some really well preserved structures. Of note there are some fabulous mosaics in really good shape. We were there on a public holiday and the park had out on a set if activities that were reasonably well managed.

    A luxorious city in its day. Various amounts of all culture packed into the mosaics. The mosaic which was in the synagogue is such a depiction of events from the Bible.

    The Mona Lisa of mosaic is famous, but the zodiac floor of the ancient synagogue is also beautiful. The view from the fortress is magnificent.
