beautiful remains of ancient city, surrounded by impressive nature, easy walk to reach this archeological wonder...likely to be alone when visiting, no tourist center or anyone there..ancient columns, theater, baths and more can be observed...

Located on a road that shows a sign not to enter (but you can enter, just be careful of the potholes) is a very well preserved site with Roman ruins as well as later ruins, partially destroyed by an earthquake. No entrance fee thus far...More

We didn't know about this site until we had taken the boat ride at Ein Gev so it came as a pleasant surprise. We were the only ones there on a sunny afternoon. Because the site isn't finished, we had amazing access to the Roman...More

I visited it in spring and the view is amazing. On the top there is an ancient Roma's city ruins. It is a good choice for people camping or picnic.

This is a must for Bible students. The story of the Demonic possessed man of Gaderia took places here. Great ruins of one of the cities of Decapolis. See a Roman road and amazing water systems.

This site is a national parks site, but is not monitored. They are doing some new excavations there and I think it is well worth the visit. There is a bit of a hike to reach the site from the road.
