Israel Travel Tour Highlights
Throughout history, the area of present-day Israel has been a cultural conduit. Its advantageous position between Asia and Africa meant that merchants and soldiers, prophets and pilgrims have, for ages, traveled trading routes across the land. The area bears witness to these and other great empires, whose abundant remains lie scattered across its soil. Begin your journey through time in Tel Aviv, where you will see the sights in the city and neighboring Jaffa for an overview of early coastal settlements. Continue north towards Haifa, stopping en route at Caesarea, Israel’s premier archaeological site. Continue to Megiddo, positioned along the ancient Via Maris trade route, followed by Akko where you will explore old Crusader ruins and the option to visit architectural relics in Beit She’arim. Travel on to Tiberias for two nights visiting the Kabbalistic city of Safed en route. Here you will explore the Upper Galilee region and spend a day at Capernaum and Tabgha before heading south towards the Dead Sea. Your adventure concludes with five nights in Jerusalem, which will allow ample time to tour the Old City and New Jerusalem, Mount of Olives, the City of David, as well as participating in an archaeological excavation just outside this historic city.
