Israel is a nation that is filled with opportunities to embrace the past. For many, a visit here is an opportunity to tap into their spiritual side, retracing the steps of famous figures like Jesus, Mohammad, or Abraham. It is also a country that is geographically diverse despite being relatively small in size.
One of the most famous sites to visit in Israel is the Wailing Wall, which 68% of all visitors to this nation visit at least once during their stay.
Visiting Jerusalem often means visiting sacred sites and museums. The modern vibe in Tel Aviv gives visitors access to beaches and an upbeat nightlife while they enjoy the White City. Beach resorts in Eilat are the perfect way to relax, especially for those who enjoy scuba diving, golden sands, and lazy afternoons underneath warm sunshine.
History can be found in many different locations throughout Israel. From the Mount of Olives to the Masada ruins near the Dead Sea, you can go as far as you want off the beaten track. Planned tours are available to help you enjoy your trip or pilgrimage or you can strike out and explore on your own if you prefer. Hiking, biking, and other adventures are all available.
Israel has the highest number of museums per capita in the world today. Explore the beautiful streets of the Old City, tap into your spirituality, and enjoy a strawberry sunset before calling it a day. When you leave your footprints here, you will also become part of its extensive history.

Best of Israel
Explore the natural beauty and historic sites of Israel on your next vacation. This versatile area of the Middle East has been home to many different civilizations for several millennia, culminating in a myriad of historical sites and modern communities up and down the country. Whether you’re on vacation with your family, group of friends, or special someone; there’s something in Israel for every type of traveler. Beach lovers will adore the many coastlines of the region from the Mediterranean to the Red Sea, while the cities offer trendy cafés, shopping, and plenty of sightseeing at every corner.
You have more than enough options of where to stay on vacation in Israel. Whether you want to drive around the country or just hang out on the beach for days, there’s a place in Israel for your itinerary. Stay in the main cities of Tel Aviv or Jerusalem for an old-meets-new-world feel that combines the best of all worlds. If you prefer more laidback aquatic atmosphere, check out Tiberias on the Sea of Galilee, Eilat on the Red Sea, or near the Dead Sea. For a pleasant mixture of both, choose Haifa on the Mediterranean coast.
The great thing about the capital of Jerusalem is that it is full of so many different cultures and historical sites that you’ll learn about all of them while visiting. Explore the different quarters, uncover its past at the Israel Museum, and enjoy its modern cafés and bars.
While there are plenty of famous sites like Bethlehem and Nazareth, make sure not to miss out on other towns and fascinating experiences. Visit the old markets of Akko, and enjoy a seaside Israel vacation at the Sea of Galilee. Visit the ancient port of Caesarea for a superb 18-hole golf course and a plethora of Roman ruins, including an aqueduct and theatre.
Head to the southernmost town in Israel, Eilat, for exquisite diving in part of the Red Sea. Sunny beaches, gorgeous coral reefs, and a course in scuba diving will help you make the most of your time here- just remember to bring a waterproof camera. Experience the heat of the nearby Negev Desert, one of the most amazing natural craters, for a contrast and sleep in a Bedouin Camp and learn about the local nomadic culture.
With over 300 archaeological sites excavated each year, you have plenty of historical and ancient sites to see. Head to Mount Masada for a spectacular view of the Dead Sea and an invigorating hike. Visit Tel Megiddo for a fantastic array of ruins from the rule of the Egyptians to the Canaanites to the Persians. Beit She’an also has a long history, beginning in the Bronze Age, with remnants of Greek culture and Crusaders of the Middle Ages.
Jaffa is the go-to destination for the locals of Tel Aviv. Perfect for days relaxing by the Mediterranean Sea, afternoon lunches in cafés, and evenings in galleries. Its small harbor was once the site of one the major ports of the sea, and the mixture of Israelis and Arabs make Jaffa an excellent cultural mini-trip.
