Israel — Introduction
It may be a small country but Israel’s treasures are of biblical proportions, with the most incredible array of historical, cultural and religious sites.
Jerusalem’s rich past stretches before the visitor and almost overwhelms the senses. From the Church of the Holy Sepulchre to the Western or Wailing Wall, the Mount of Olives and the Dome of the Rock the city’s significance is undeniable.
If you want to treat your body and mind visit the Dead Sea where you can float away your cares before trying mineral and mud treatments.
Nearby Masada is a historical mountain fortress, while the famed Dead Sea Scrolls were discovered at caves in the area.
At the very south of the country the beach resort of Eilat is a wonderful place to unwind between its background of granite mountains and the inviting Red Sea. It’s the perfect place to enjoy a host of water sports or get up close and personal with tropical fish while diving on its coral reefs.
Take time to enjoy Galilee, home to many of Israel’s most iconic landmarks and a place of great historical and religious significance. From the twinkling Sea of Galilee to the ancient crusader castles in Acre, it is a region hosting beautiful plateaus, mountains, valleys and a striking coastline.
