Regardless the story about the last war that suppose to occur, this old city of Megiddo contained data of 25 times of city's destruction and at least 24 times of rebuilding (4000 years of history). Due to the fact that this city was located in...More

Keeping in mind that there are approx 300 steps, it is a must visit if you any interest at all in the Bible. The water tunnel is a must. Supplementing this visit, read "The Source" by James Michener

Tel Megiddo, a man-made, archeological mound, is like a 26-layer history cake that dates back to the Bronze Age. The site was highly prized--and fought over--by kings throughout the centuries because of its position on the ancient trade route connecting ancient Egypt and Assyria. As...More

Megiddo was destroyed and rebuilt at least 26 times. It overlooks the beautiful and fertile Jezreel Valley, also known as Har-megeddon (Armegeddon). Its long history and strategic location can lead to a lot of reasonable speculation such as Abram (Abraham) may have stopped here. A...More

Not much to see here. What there is is very interesting. Seems like a lot more excavation is required. If you have time you should stop and check it out.

Megiddo, Armageddon, is a biblical site and an historic landmark. The beginning of the end happens here. For tourists, the view is beautiful and the history is fascinating. It is a little athletic but worth it.

Megiddo is easily accessable from both Tel Aviv and Haifa. There is no problem whatsoever to visit it alone, if you go to the museam first, and get a right impression what you are going to sea further. This done, you may... More
