Tel Aviv

Jerusalem

Jerusalem Israel attraction

A religious hub and a hotbed of history, Jerusalem has one of the world’s most recognizable skylines. The ancient city is recognized for its deeply spiritual significance among those who subscribe to monotheistic faiths as well as being riddled with an endless labyrinthine assortment of alleyways in the old district packed with historical landmarks that are both mind-bogglingly incredible and religiously significant.

Haifa

Haifa is the perfect base for those who want to explore Israel’s northern coast. The most popular attraction in Haifa is Baha’i Gardens, which fall down a hillside towards the Sea and are just beautiful! Not only that but there are plenty of cafes with modern dining culture too- So if you’re looking for some peace and quiet outside of Tel Aviv this could be your new home away from home.

Haifa is an easy going city with a great location. It’s just minutes from some of Israel most amazing sites, including Akko and Nazareth!

Nazareth

A holy destination for Christians, Nazareth is also one of the most popular tourist spots in Israel. The Annunciation took place here and Jesus Christ was raised on these streets so it’s no wonder there are many important churches that celebrate this history around town, including a major basilica called the Basilica of the Annunciation.

Jaffa

Jaffa Israel attraction

Jaffa is a chilled-out little harbor town with an illustrious past as a major port. Made for aimless wandering and home to an excellent flea market, Jaffa provides old world style respite from the modern thrum of Tel Aviv next door.

Jaffa is an amazing place to spend a weekend morning. From the picturesque Jaffa port, you can wander among small art galleries and craft shops before grabbing brunch at one of its many restaurants. Once your stomachs are full, head to the bustling main street for more shopping or simply enjoy outdoor dining on any number of benches that line it!

The Dead Sea

The lowest point on earth and one of the world’s most wacky natural wonders, the Dead Sea is a mineral-rich sea where no one can sink. Locked in by cliffs at The Great Rift Valley, this bizarre body of water has been wowing travelers for centuries with its strange characteristics such as being overly salty (natural buoyancy occurs due to high salt content) or fouling your feet if you step out into it without precautions.

The Dead Seas are just waiting to be explored so why not add them onto your bucket list today!

Bethlehem

Bethlehem is a major Christian pilgrimage site, home to the Church of Nativity built over the spot where Jesus Christ was born. The stately church complex with its far-reaching historical significance and bustling bazaar makes this a must stop destination for travelers in Israel. And although many people come as day trip from Jerusalem, Bethlehem offers an excellent place to base yourself when going on excursions into surrounding countryside that has Byzantine monasteries and sites related events relayed in New Testament.

Timna Park

Timna Park Israel attraction

Timna Park is a raw, rugged desert landscape that offers one of the most beautiful corners in all of Israel. The scenery here has an enchanting quality and it’s worth exploring ancient mine shafts where miners dug for copper since even before Egyptians existed.

Timna park is home to some pretty incredible landscapes with unique rock shapes–a rare sight you can only find at Timma!

Sea of Galilee

Full of attractions, the shoreline that wraps around this sea offers gorgeous countryside and bags history. Whether you’re here to visit Tabgha where Jesus delivered his Sermon on the Mount or do some hiking in Tiberias with hot springs near by, this beautiful region is a major highlight for any trip. Don’t miss taking an swim in it’s own water as well-worth seeing views across from high up hillsides!

Masada

Masada is a mountain fortress overlooking the Dead Sea region. It’s home to incredible views and some fascinating history, including King Herod’s former palace on top of Masada which was once filled with all sorts of treasures from Rome. And it also served as one last stand for Jewish rebels against Roman legions – when they were defeated in 73 CE by an impending attack this mountaintop citadel would be their final defense!

For those not up for hiking Snake Path or scaling its cliffs then take the cable car instead—it’ll give you great views without any sweat at all!

Mar Saba Monastery

Mar Saba Monastery Israel attraction

Mar Saba Monastery is an architectural marvel of the Byzantine age, precariously snuggled into the cliff face as if it had sprouted organically out of the sheer rock. The metal domes glint in sunlight from between gaping spaces that open up to reveal natural caves and towering pillars carved by time. Although female travelers are not allowed to actually enter this holy site for male monks, a view outside its walls will make you feel like you’re inside with all-encompassing views stretching across hillsides dotted with olive groves or vineyards choked full grapes so ripe they burst when touched!

Beit Shean

Fans of Roman and Byzantine culture will enjoy the many ruins that make up Beit Shean, a fantastic example of this part of ancient life. Stroll through streets lined with columns, explore our well-preserved theater where great plays were performed centuries ago, or read about the history in one of our museums to get an idea for how people lived back then.

Akko

Akko Israel attraction

Akko is one of the most enjoyable towns to explore. The medieval-style city walls, old khans (caravanserais), and fort remnants speak of another age when this town was at its height as a center for commerce in the empire. Akko has a mellow harbor full of colorful fishing boats bobbing along; an exciting bazaar that’s crammed with spices, produce, artisanal products and history alike; all set against modern life like schools alongside mosques or stores beside churches – One could say it’s truly something special!
