Israel Holidays

Reference WW49206
Israel

Few countries have so many historical, biblical and many other beautifully kept architectural delights like Israel. Israel is an exciting destination with stunning natural and man-made sights.

Beyond the biblical sites in Jerusalem, Tel Aviv offers a completely different feel, with stunning beaches, markets, incredible food and some of the best nightlife in the Middle East. With a journey time of only 40 minutes between Jerusalem & Tel Aviv, why not make your trip a twin centre and experience both contrasting cities?

Ready to go further? Visit the Dead Sea – the lowest point on earth and float in the salt waters. The Dead Sea is also renowned for Dead Sea mud, with it’s healing properties.

Looking for some winter sun? Why not visit Israel’s most southern resort, Eilat. With year-round sunshine and temperatures over 20c even in the coolest months and new direct flights from the UK, what are you waiting for?

Top 5 Things To Do

Stroll the ancient pathways of Jerusalem’s Old City – Get lost in the maze that is Jerusalem’s Old City. Divided into four quarters, you will witness the buzzing alleyways and markets. Don’t miss the Western Wall, the star of the Old City.
Gordon Beach – Tel Aviv’s main beach, with plenty of sun-loungers, restaurants and ice-cream shops to cool you down in the summer heat. Gordon Beach is popular with locals and tourists alike. On Saturdays, you may even see the locals folk dancing on the boardwalk!
Visit the Holocaust memorial museum, Yad Vashem – Situated on the Mount of Remembrance in Jerusalem, Yad Vashem is the largest and most comprehensive Holocaust memorial and museum on earth, dedicated to keeping the memories of those who perished alive. This sobering experience is a “must-do” when in Jerusalem.

OUR EXPERT SAYS

Israel is not what you’d expect! Fun, interesting and some of the best food I’ve ever tasted. I’d highly recommend visiting both Jerusalem and Tel Aviv, so you can experience the contrast of the ancient with the modern. If you have time, you have got to experience floating in the salty waters of The Dead Sea, it’s so salty you can’t stand up!
