Israel Travel

There are many reasons why people choose Israel travel and tourism. Some travel to Israel as a Holy Land, as it is the center of three main religions – Judaism, Christianity and Islam. Others enjoy cultural or historical tours – Israel’s history is not measured in centuries but in millennia. Others head for the mountains and the Golan Heights for eco-tourism trips, or take desert vacations in Mitzpe Ramon or Arad on the Dead Sea. Further south is the popular diving resort of Eilat on the Red Sea.

Crumbling temples, ruined forts and Biblical sites abound from the Golan to Tiberias, Nazareth and Gilboa around the Sea of Galilee. Old restored towns such as Ramat Gan, Rosh Pina in Upper Galilee, Zichron Yaacov on Mount Carmel and Old Jaffa have charming cobbled streets and ancient architecture to delight Israel travel guests.

Tel Aviv is a relative newcomer, yet its bright lights, sandy beaches, museums and nightlife make this an excellent choice for an Israel vacation, and tours to the surrounding areas give a wider views of Israel’s older sights. Make Tel Aviv your base for a vacation in Israel and explore Old Jaffa, Bat Yam, Ashdod and Ashkelon to the south, or head north along the coast to take in Herzeliya, Netanya, Caesarea and the Hanging Gardens of Haifa. The quieter, less developed resorts of Acre and Nahariya are close to the Lebanon border and provide a mixture of old and new, urban and beach, which is what makes Israel travel so exceptional.

Israel has its share of UNESCO World Heritage Sites including the Old City of Acre, Tel Aviv’s White City, the Biblical tells around Beer Sheba, the Baha’i holy places in Haifa and the Masada National Park. The capital city, Jerusalem, has many wonderful sites both spiritual and historical to visit as part of your Israel travel experience.

From the heights of Mount Hermon to the Judean Desert and the fabulous Mediterranean coastline, Israel travel hotspots can provide something to thrill and delight every traveler.
