Yodfat is the site of the famous battle in the Great Revolt (66-70 CE), in which the town’s Jewish general, who became the famous historian Josephus, was captured after he “opted out” of a suicide pact. At this off-the-beaten track site, you’ll see caves and cisterns (careful, not all are marked!) and part of the ancient city wall that played a part in the fateful story Josephus tells. The site reveals beautiful vistas of oak, and carob and olive groves and Jewish National Fund pine forests. For exact directions, call the Israel Nature and Parks Authority at 03-638-8688.
