Site of Armageddon, it's nice to know where The End will happen. If, however, the world doesn't end while you're visiting, you get to walk around the ruins and get a nice view of the surrounding countryside. The actual archaeology/ruins, while significant, are limited compared...More

Important stop on our Israel tour. This site does not contain highly preserved relics or architecture. It does have history and Biblical importance. Learned from the visit and enjoy the view.

The very name Armageddon as Megiddo is referred to in the Bible sends thrills down the spine as the last battle on earth is supposed to take place here. But whether it's merely metaphorical or this will be the actual site remains to be seen!...More

Biblical Armageddon- ruins are amazing. Really recommend a visit to this place. Book at least 1.5 hrs to walk around and make sure you read a bit about it before visiting.

An excellent and very interesting place to visit and wander around and the views from the top over Armagedon are amazing. Make sure you go through the water tunnel and understand its history

We saw dozens of biblical sites on our trip but Megiddo was one of my favorites. Well documented with signs to explain what you are seeing.
