Jerusalem (Old City)

The ancient Old city is Israel`s capital city in which are three sacred major religions namely; the Islam, the Judaism and the Christianity. Jerusalem is encircled by stone walls built at Ottoman era and to the inside, it contains the holy sites such as the Western wall, which is most visited. The Jews often visits Dome of the Rock and the Church of the Holy Sepulchre.

Masada

The Masada was an ancient Jewish sect that out looked the last tragic resistance of the zealots to the Romans. The rampart s that the Romans had built still exists at the foot of the peak if you could hike up the Snake Path.

The Dead Sea

The Dead Sea has the lowest point on earth below the sea level. Its water is ten times saltier to that of ocean`s hence giving all things a tendency to float therefore you wouldn`t swim in it. This water is rich in minerals that are most beneficial to those with skin problems.

YadVashem

In Jerusalem, it is the largest Holocaust museum and memorial in the world. It was established in the more recent Holocaust History Museum as designed by architect Moshe Safdie. There are numerous exhibition halls within its dramatic central triangular structure.

Caesarea National Park

This park is halfway between Tel Aviv and Haifa, and is among Israel’s brightest archaeological gems. It was built some 2,000 years ago by Herod the Great, who dedicated the port to Caesar Augustus. Ruins from the Roman and Crusader periods are framed by stunning sea views, and the restored ancient amphitheater is now used for concerts in the summertime. (image by :  Ben-lee Volk )

The Galilee

The Galilee is inextricably linked with the life of Jesus Christ, in particular the Sea of Galilee, and two of Judaism’s four holy cities, Tiberias and Safed, are located in this lush northern region. The expression “a land flowing with milk and honey” is very apt for the region, which abounds not only in historic sites but agricultural plenty and lots of great lodging options, too.

Eilat

On the Red Sea, is Israel’s seaside resort par excellence. If visits to the holy sites in Jerusalem and elsewhere leave you with a weighty sense of history, blow it all off here, where suntanning, water sports and swimming with dolphins is de rigueur.

Baha’i Gardens, Haifa

The “hanging gardens of Haifa” fan along a broad staircase of 19 terraces that extend up the northern slope of Mount Carmel. The central terrace houses the gold-domed Shrine of the Bab, a central figure of the Baha’i faith. These magnificent gardens are on UNESCO’s World Heritage List.

Be assured to enjoy in this Holy city with your kids and family.
