Old Jaffa - Onde visitar em Israel

Tel Aviv & the Mediterranean Coast

Tel Aviv – the “city that never sleeps” – is the cultural and economic hub of the modern State of Israel. The city boasts museums, cultural centers and wonderful restaurants, as well as a beachfront promenade. Additional sites along the coast include the Roman port city of Caesarea and the charming city of Zichron Yaakov.

Galilee and Northern Israel

Stretching from Haifa and the Carmel Mountains on the Mediterranean coast in the west up to the Golan Heights in the east and encompassing the Sea of Galilee, the northern part of Israel is rich with history, nature and culture. Featured sites also include the Crusader city of Akko, the water grottos at Rosh Hanikra, antiquities around the Sea of Galilee, the Mount of Beatitudes and a variety of local farms and wineries.


For 3,000 years, Jerusalem has been a central city on the world stage. Holy city to three mono-theistic faiths, the city is rich with antiquities, holy sites, and museums. As a modern day city, it also features cultural centers and a variety of culinary options.

The Dead Sea

The Dead Sea is the lowest place on earth and also serves as a hub of nature and history.
Featured activities include a walk in the Ein Gedi nature reserve, a visit to the ruins of Herod’s desert palace atop Masada and, of course, an “unsinkable” swim in the salty waters of the Dead Sea.
** Masada and the Dead Sea can easily be visited as a 1-day excursion from Jerusalem.

The Negev Desert

The heart of southern Israel offers tremendous beauty and history in a unique desert setting.
Featured activities include visits to Beer Sheva, the capital of the Negev, Sde Boker, once home to the late David Ben Gurion (Israel’s first Prime Minister), the nature reserve and desert waterfall at Ein Avdat, the Nabatean ruins from the ancient spice route at Avdat, and the remarkable Makhtesh Ramon.


Located on the shores of the Red Sea, Eilat is a resort town offering beach-front hotels, water sports and opportunities for desert exploration. Eilat can also be your base for a 1-day or 2-day excursion to Petra.
