Israel is one of the holiest and sacred places on earth. Both Christians and Muslims visit the Holy Land sacred sites as well as the Dead Sea, with a salt content so high that you can see comically sit up, bolt upright in the waves, supported by the ebb and flow of the salty current. There are also green hills and valleys of the Israel National Trail and the multicoloured canyon of Makhtesh Ramon. Tel Aviv has become a popular metropolis for tourists as has the boutique wineries of the Galilee region.
Israel is a truly diverse country. Within a few hours, you can go from the snowy heights of Mount Hermon to the Judean Desert and the saltiest sea on earth, the Dead Sea, while visiting ancient biblical cities, covered markets and a high-rise metropolis on the way. A superb holiday location for all. Visit Jerusalem, Israel's capital, with its array of ancient sites including the City of David, the Mount of Olives, the Four Quarters and more. Alternatively stay in the second largest city, Tel Aviv, recently voted as one of the world's top ten beach cities by the National Geographic Magazine. Another outstanding destination is Eilat, on the Red Sea coast. A sunny, year-round, hot spot. Popular for skin and SCUBA diving, with equipment for hire on or near all major beaches. The Dead Sea is famous for its buoyancy and medicinal qualities and has some wonderful hotels and spas. For lush, verdant green, a visit to the coastal mountain range of Mount Carmel will not disappoint. It also plays hosts to Israel third largest city Haifa. A perfect way to immerse yourself in the sights, sounds and history of this fascinating country is to take Longwood's Holyland Highlights Tour. There are also various Multi Centre Israel options.
