Haifa Shore Excursion: Nazareth and Galilee Day Trip

66 reviews
The city of Nazareth and the Sea of Galilee are must-sees for anyone who wishes to visit Christianity’s holiest sites. While in port in Haifa, travel by minivan with a driver-guide to show you each location. Roam the Capernaum ruins; visit the Basilica of the Annunciation and Mount of Beatitudes; and stop at Capernaum, the home of St. Peter.

Also known as Tel (Hill) Megiddo, this UNESCO World Heritage Site is an historically significant ancient location of artifacts & ruins from various cultures, dating back from the Neolithic Period (7th-6th Century BC), through the Kings of Israel, and abandoned under the times of the Persians. Portions of the Canaanite City Gate remain from the Late Bronze Age as the visitor enters onto the Megiddo site, along a pathway winding up through sparse ruins. At the Northern Observation Point, a view overlooking the famous Jezreel Valley reveals the former battlefield below, where major battles occurred in the 15th Century BCE under Egyptian Pharaoh Thutmose III, later Alexander the Great and more recently in World War I (1918), General Edmund Allenby, who successfully fought the Ottoman Turkish forces here. Napoleon observed at Megiddo that: "All the armies of the world could maneuver their forces on this vast plain". Yes; this is the location of the final "Biblical Battle of Armageddon" and has numerous historic references within the Jewish "Tanakh" & the Christian "Bible". A former trade route that linked Egypt with Mesopotamia, this strategic site overlooks the key pass through the Carmel Mountains. This formerly fortified city used chariots for protection and its horses were sheltered in two stable complexes, whose foundations are now outlined. Most intriguing was our exploration through the protected water system and its tunnel, built under the period of the Israelite Kings, within the former walls of Megiddo. A 10 minute film prior to your tour explains the history of Megiddo and its archeological excavations. A visit to Megiddo is awe-inspiring and should not be missed!

You'd be hard pressed to find a more desolately beautiful view! Megiddo (AKA Armageddon, in ancient Greek) is an interesting site to be seen!

The town of Megiddo is on the edge of the Megiddo Valley, the site of the future Battle of Armageddon. What a view - a totally flat, bleak, sandy and rocky area below sea level. The park is on the edge.

For christians the site of Armageddon, this park is very well maintained and is a pleasure to walk around. One can see thousands of years of history and the view of the valley and fields and nearby villages is picture worthy. It is a great hike for exercise as well!

This is quite the site. It has one of the most spectacular views in Israel. They have a good film that helps introduce the history. You can spend some time here if you love history and especially Bible history.
