We start our day with Tel Azeka, an amazing lookout on the Biblical valley where David and Goliath had their encounter. We’ll visit Midras, a tunnel from Bar Kochva’s period. This tunnel helped him and his army in their rebellion against the Romans in 132 AC. We then drive to Maresha, an ancient town from 100 BC. Exploring an active archeological dig, the columbarium, the olive oil factory, the caves they used to live in and the ancient sepulcher. We will finish our day in the unforgettable stalactite cave, which was found by accident in a quarry.
