On my Bucket List was the mosaics of the 'Mona Lisa of the Galilee' in Tzippori National Park. The advice of tripadvisors, who answered my queries, helped us to realize that experience just 2 weeks ago. This beautifully preserved vast area far exceeded expectations. Though not huge, Mona Lisa took my breath away. The entire park is a treasure to... More

If you’re at all interested in archeology this is a “must” stop. It contains examples for Greek, Roman, Jewish, Crusader and Ottoman civilizations. Many of the mosaics are in covered areas, which is helpful if the day is warm.

As a foreign visitor or as a native visitor, a place you have to visit. Marvelous ancient mosaic works kept in good shape. A nice place to spend 2-3 hours at least.

Tzippori is an ancient city in the lower Galilee, it was once a center of Jewish life. We had a great family time traveling through the beautiful mosaic floors and ancient reservoir. The kids loves the cave that used to lead water to the old city. Recommended.

This place is worth a visit. The mosaics found in this site are the best preserved of the area. The site is quite large and I advice to bring a bottle of water with you. The ruins are surrounded by olive trees and mediterrean bushes and overall the atmosphere is touching. The mosaics of the so-called Mona Lisa of the... More

I LOVED this place. The old synagogue and its mosaic floor is amazing. The movie and its soundtrack moved me to tears. Of all the amazing things in Israel, this was my favourite.

It is a bit off the usual places the tourists visit, but in order to understand the Greek-Roman influence in the Galillee, and understand how life went about, you have to visit this site, firstly for the beautiful mosaics uncovered here, secondly, there is still much to be uncovered, and to see the Mona Lisa of the Galilee....it was very...

This was such an amazing place. We walked past the colonnaded main street, and were just wandering down to the right and even with our map seemed to almost stumble upon the intricate mosaic synagogue floor! What a fascinating place! To think this floor was only discovered in the 90's when they were digging the parking lot for the interpretive... More

If you love mosaics as I do, this is the site for you! You can see the Mona Lisa of the Galilee from the 'Governor's House' atop the hill, walk down to the city to view the House of Orpheus treasures. Across the street is the Nile House with its mysterious mosaics. Walk back up and pause by the Forum... More

Really impressive ruins in Israel. Shows Greek and Roman influence on the Jews at the time. Do not miss the synagogue (although its a bit of a walk). Also, the mosaics are just outstanding - some of the best I've seen in Israel.
