Take a tour of UNESCO-protected Tel 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.

Tel Megiddo National Park Reviews
הנוף מהתל כשלעצמו, כבר שווה את הביקור. בכניסה יש סרטון הסבר קצר, לא ממצה ובעיקר ישן! ממליץ לחדשו בהקדם. המסלול הליכה נוח ומאפשר מעבר באתרים המרכזיים, כולל תצפיות לעמק יזרעאל והסביבה. יש לשים לב לשעות ... more »The view from the tell itself is already worth the visit. The entrance has a short, not-exhaustive, and mostly old-fashioned explanatory video! Recommend renew as soon as possible. The route is convenient and allows passage through the main sites, including observations of the Jezreel Valley and the surrounding area. Pay attention to the closing hours in order not to miss the decline to the water factory which is certainly a must-see point for visiting the site. There are excavations and there is also interest to those who have already visited the past. Parking, services and a lovely souvenir shop at the entrance.

Sensational visit the hill and the ruins of Megido. Fantastic The history of this place beyond the beautiful view of the Jesrael Valley.
Biggest attraction is the water cave. Other than that it is a city of ruins. If you are into archeology it is great but if you are not maybe not so much. Biggest problem is the lack of shade. On hot days its tough
Beautiful, and full of broken pottery pieces. Me and people on our tour found handles of (thousand years old) vases just lying around the park! We also saw some wildlife as well ( including 1/2 foot long centipedes ) The old carved tunnel is beautifully preserved, and very cool if you visit in a hot day. Overall amazing place !
