If you see one archeological site in Israel it should be here. It’s a huge site with Roman ruins and an amphitheater but also a large Tel with remnants from many civilizations.

This is one of those places that reminds you who the real ruler is of the universe. By God's providence this site has been preserved throughout the Egyptian, Biblical, Babylonian, Hellenistic, and Byzantine periods. About a block long but packed with beautiful artifacts and finds.

A must-see for all (Roman) history lovers. Greatly preserved amphitheatre, baths, colonnades, mosaics, and even public toilets! If you can, get a private guide, you will get to know much more than from generally accessible (and pretty detailed, too) descriptions.

I think might try contacting hotels in the area. For example, there is a youth hostel in Bet She'an You might want to stay over one night, which of course could make it even easier
