This museum and archeological sites were fantastic. The curator and manager was especially helpful and professional. The north wall and remnants of the wooden bridge were fascinating.

We weren't expecting anything as brilliant as this site. Fortunately we had a great guide, Angelika. She is an archaeologist and incredibly knowledgeable. She made the history come alive for the city in all its various stages beginning in the 7th century BCE. Also the...More

So much history!! Make sure to hire a guide to take you here. My favorite things were the theater - standing in the middle and hearing my normal voice project up to the (modern day) sound booth; Paul's jail cell as church tradition has passed...More
