Lush beauty and fantastic archaeological finds make this place worth a visit, especially if you have an interest in Roman culture or Talmudic thought. Like many places during the Roman era, Zippori—known in the classical world as Sepphoris—was a prosperous city where Jews and gentiles coexisted fairly peaceably. The extensive ruins at the much-visited park include Israel's finest Roman-era mosaics. The ancient city, situated on a high ridge with commanding views, can be visited in two hours. The key sites are relatively close together.
When there was every reason in the world to stay away and see the ruins, one woman traveled to Greece to get to work.More
