Full description
Explore King Herod’s ancient fortress in Masada and discover the legendary tale of the Roman siege, battle strategies, and the rebels’ ultimate sacrifice. This self-guided walking tour was developed by local guides, creative writers, and professional voice artists. Start by downloading the app that will function as your personal guide, narrator, and map, and head to the meeting point. Then, take a journey back in time with the story of Masada, its rebels, and their battle against the Romans. Begin your walk through the fortress, starting with the iconic Snake Path Gate. Pass the quarry and explore the commandant’s residence and storerooms. Enter the Northern Palace to admire the terrace. Continue farther inside to discover the large bathhouse, columbarium towers, breaching point, and Tanner’s Tower. Move on to explore the other rooms in the complex, including the ritual bath and the southern gate. Take your time admiring mosaic floors, ancient architecture, and the sprawling palatial complex of bathhouses, pools, and storerooms. As you explore these historic spots, uncover the hidden mysteries of the palace that have remained untouched for 2,000 years.
