"Beit She'an National Park" Bet She'an by curiouslumi

Bet She'an Travel Guide: 15 reviews and 125 photos

Beit She'an National Park features remains of the ancient Roman city Scythopolis . When excavations started, archeologists discovered 20 cultural layers on site.
It's a fascinating place where theatre sitting 7000 spectators at times, bath houses, interesting pawements and even ancient public toilets are on display.
Israeli National Park authority has extensive info including dates and names: http://www.parks.org.il/ParksENG/company_card.php3?NewNameMade=44&from=116&CNumber=767359

I've a little on-line album dedicated to the place here: http://inna.roolz.org/gallery/view_album.php?set_albumName=BeitShean&page=1

    Very nice pictures. Just visited here myself - over 40 deg. there, but very interesting.
