Very impressive caves. The biblical Tel Maresha appears to be unexcavated. Don't miss the Roman theater and baths across the highway. It's included in the park pass.

We visited the Bet Guvrin park and had a wonderful, wonderful time. This is a good activity for families (even with young children) and adults - if bringing an infant I'd advise a carrying frame of some sort since not all areas have paved paths...More
