For three brave years, the freedom fighters on this rocky plateau — known as the Zealots — managed to hold back 10,000 Roman troops armed with every contemporary siege weapon. Finally, a battering ram breached the wall.
Hello Aviva and Shmuel,
The trip was wonderful. It was everything that we could have wanted. We saw so much of what we did not see on our first trip. This was definitely the way to see the country. I am sure that it helped that we had a full 2 weeks to do it. We saw art, culture, history, archeology, religion etc., etc. This was certainly a different experience than the mega bus tour we were on 21 years ago!
