Beit She'an National Park
Located in southern Galilee in the Jordan Valley, Beit She'an National Park was created to protect and preserve the site of one of Israel's oldest cities. One can easily spend a few hours exploring the vast and fascinating park. Some of the country's most spectacular artifacts dating back to the Bronze Age are on exhibit, as well as an impressive 7,000-seat Roman amphitheater, public baths, workshops, a temple, and the colonnaded Palladius street. Don't miss She'an Nights, an evening sound-and-light show in which images of Roman buildings and people are projected onto the ruins along the central street, briefly bringing the city back to life.
