King Herod had this port city built more than 2,000 years ago and it does not take too much imagination to picture the old city during its prime. There are remnants of a grand amphitheater, the palace, a temple, luxurious bathhouse, a network of streets...More

The collection is varied and grows every time I go. The dig is being worked on all the time and things are being uncovered and reconstructed to attain some of their former glory. I return again and again.
