Welcome to Israel
Combine beautiful natural landscapes with holy sites for three of the world's major religions and you have Israel. What some would call the heart of the Middle East has much to offer travelers. In Tel Aviv—the cosmopolitan hub on Israel's Mediterranean coast—sightseeing tours highlight UNESCO-listed architecture and culinary hotspots, while the Dead Sea region boasts the oasis of Ein Gedi, ancient Masada, and, of course, one of the world's oldest natural spas. Nazareth, Jericho, Masada, and Bethlehem are popular day trips from both Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, perfect for those who want to immerse themselves in the region's religious history.
