Beautiful site. I have been to Israel many times and have never driven here before. The drive was from Gush Etzion and was a bit scary. Took the road home through Har Homa, a better option. There was another group on site that was generous enough to let us tag along with their tour guide. He was excellent and I... 更多
You need to be fairly fit to make this steep climb but the view is worth it and the history available regarding Herod is very interesting. Need a tour guide to really enjoy.
This park is located amidst the archaeological ruins of structures initially built for King Herod and then later civilizations.

Few people will visit Herodian because it is located very close to a number of Palestinian villages. This is a shame because it is fascinating and they are always finding out more. It's like a mini--masada. Kids will enjoy walking down the steep stairs inside. I'm not crazy about the introductary film, you can learn some background online or from... 更多
