Let Us Plan Your Travel to Israel
Many visitors make pilgrimages to Israel to walk in the footsteps of Jesus and his disciples, with Christians, Jews and Muslims all considering Jerusalem the Holy Land. History buffs will love learning all about the sacred sites and religious landmarks, from the pathways and ancient walls of Nazareth, Jerusalem and beyond.
Today the call of the muezzin and quiet prayers of Orthodox Jews at the Western Wall reflecting the devotion of those from the three monolithic religions continues through every facet of daily life. But Israel, located along the Mediterranean Sea between Egypt and Lebanon offers much more.
For such a small country, it boasts spectacular and diverse landscapes from vast swaths of desert and coastal plains to lush valleys and one of the world’s saltiest lakes, the Dead Sea, with such a high salt content that people float atop the water like a cork. Nearby you’ll find Masada, King Herod’s fortress/palace. Hike or ride a cable car to the top where you’ll find excavations of the last stronghold in the Jewish freedom fighter’s insurgency against the Romans.
Tel Aviv is an incredible city, modern and full of street art, open-air markets, trendy cafes and fabulous restaurants, with its 1930s Bauhaus architecture numbering in the thousands. A UNESCO-listed lite, the structures on Rothschild Boulevard are especially impressive. At Haifa, you an explore the sacred Bahai Gardens and take in a panoramic view from Mount Carmel. Nearby is the Bahais’ holiest city, ancient Acre, the former capital of the Crusaders kingdom.

Many come to experience the sensation of floating like a cork and soak up therapeutic minerals like magnesium said to help heal a variety of skin ailments and combat the effects of aging.
Visit the Wailing Wall
The 2,000-year-old Wailing Wall is considered to be the holiest site for the Jewish faith. Made of limestone, it includes the last remains of the Second Jewish Temple. It’s so holy that ultra-Orthodox Jews won’t step beyond it to the spot where the temple actually sat for fear of desecrating the land. Men and women come to pray, regardless of faith.
Visit the Church of Holy Sepulchre
One of the most revered Christian sites in the world, the 12th-century Church of Holy Sepulchre has 4th-century origins, built on the site believed to be the location of Jesus’ resurrection. It’s been a place of pilgrimage for some 1,700 years, bringing Christians from all denominations and others from across the globe to see the chambers and vestibules ladened with frankincense.
Go Diving on Eilat's Reefs
The beach resort town of Eilat sits along the Red Sea at the southernmost tip of Israel and is especially renowned for its diving and snorkeling opportunities.

Take a Walk Through Tel Aviv's White City
The “White City” is home to thousands of International Style buildings from the 1930s, also known as Bauhaus, largely created by 200 architects who were escaping Nazi Germany. It covers 1.5-square miles with the streetscape dominated by white and pastel exteriors, balconies, minimalist and functional designs, and flat roofs.
