Magic of Avdat Acropolis is beyond any imagination. This walled site can be seen from a distance. And closer you come more powerful and great it looks like.

The most amazing of this place is that you can really travel back in time and imagine how life was during the Nabatean period. The contrast of the colors, between the sun, the soil and the walls, are something unique.

This archaeological site is really interesting. The signs are clear and informative. The walkways are easily navigated. We loved learning about the spice route and the Nabateans who provided loding, food and protection for those traveling the route.
