Interested in Hellenistic art and architecture? How about Roman, Babylonian, and Byzantine buildings and structures? Do you like Assyrian, Arabic, and Ottoman craftsmanship? For many scholars and students of history, these are some of the go-to branches of ancient art and development throughout the world. It’s unfortunate that you’d have to travel all across Europe and Asia to see examples of them together and outside of a museum. You’d have to purchase a boatload of European airline tickets for that kind of tour. Unless, of course, you pay a visit to Tzipporo, an ancient Roman town now protected as a national park in Israel. And today, flights to Israel are cheap and comfortable.
Tzippori sits just northwest of Nazareth (yes, that Nazareth) in the central Galilee area. Its founding dates back to at least the seventh century BCE, and the surrounding park area includes a tower from the time of the crusades. Resting atop a hill, the tower includes a sarcophagus and was at one time used as a school. The most impressive feature of the whole town, though, is the central Roman villa, wherein one can find one of the most spectacular mosaics in all of Israel. The image constructed from the tiles primarily concerns Dionysus, god of wine, and would once have been considered by lounging Romans during times of leisure.
