Did you know that Ashkelon is considered to be one of the oldest cities in the world? Yes, the modern city was only built when the country was formed in 1948, but Ashkelon has a history of over 5,000 years. It is also one of the oldest port and trade cities in Israel, with a national park containing ruins from the Canaanite and Roman periods, among others. Some also attribute Ashkelon parts of the Samson and Delilah story, since it was also a Philistine city. So come one, open Yango app, hop on a taxi in Ashkelon and go to see the ruins.
