One of the most ancient cities in the world is Ashkelon; it is more than 5000 years old. The Mediterranean climate here is pleasant, characterized by rainy winters and sunny summers. You can get to this popular tourist place from Tel Aviv, where Ben Gurion Airport is, and also from Haifa, Jerusalem and Beersheba.
But it is important to know that the station is located right on the edge of the city, so it's best to go to Ashkelon by bus or taxi. The city has many attractions in the park Leumi on the Mediterranean coast. That's where everyone will be able to see the colonnade of King Herod period and a beautiful statue of the Goddess of victory - Nike
There is also an ancient Roman amphitheater where musicians give their concerts. The district Afridar is famous for the cave where you can see the ancient tombs. And in Barnea you can see the mosaic of fifth century and the remains of a Byzantine church. In addition to the attractions, tourists come to the shopping centers, with a concert halls nearby, as well as City Hall.
You can’t miss the chance to see the quite pristine sandy scenic dunes located in the South of Ashkelon. This city has an extraordinary beauty of the landscape and light atmosphere.
