Archeology & Wine: Jewish City of the Dead and Lower Galilean Winemaking



Meeting Time:06:00

Completion Time: 15:30


Just an hour north of Tel Aviv, Archeology & Wine takes us to one of the more unique areas of the Lower Galilee.

We’ll start out day with a visit to Beit Shearim and the Jewish Necropolis (burial city) that became the largest for the Jewish people both in Israel and the Diaspora after the destruction of the Second Temple. We’ll explore the burial caves and discover the local secrets that developed here while the Romans controlled the holy land.

After Beit Shearim, we’ll head over to the nearby Yiftahel Winery to taste some of the finest wines in the area and learn about the ancient winemaking traditions and local wines in the Lower Galilee.

This trip is limited in space and is dependent on a certain number of participants.
