Zippori National Park, encompassing the ruins of a Talmudic city, is located west of Nazareth. Described by Josephus Flavius as "the ornament of all Galilee," it was the seat of the Sanhedrin and the home of Rabbi Judah Hanasi, third-century redactor of the Mishnah. The partially restored 4,500-seat Roman theater affords a beautiful view, and Zipporis famed mosaics include the haunting "Mona Lisa of the Galilee", the evocative fifth-century synagogue floor and Nile Mosaic. The cavernous first-century CE water system is an adventure, and the visitors center hosts activities, tours and ancient-style events.
