Entrance to the Hamat Tiberias National Park gives you access to both the Hamei Tveria Hot Springs and to the surrounding area, which includes an archaeological site with ruins of an ancient synagogue and Roman baths from 2,000 years ago. The synagogue ruins -- particularly...More

Absolutely beautiful synagogue mosaic but not the equal of Zippori. Little to really see except for the synagogue floor. Explanation of the symbology is excellent and in English. Parking is very difficult. The best parking is across the divided street so access can be a...More

Small but fascinating. Difficult to park but we left the car at Rabbi Meir's tomb (also worth a visit) - it's not far to walk. Incredibly well-preserved mosaic and also pleasant place to relax.

It’s a small excavation site just south of Tiberias, which is worthwhile if you, like us, are interested in archeology of the Roman period. It was a half hour well spent. The National Park pass can be used.
