Israel

Israel

Everything runs deep here. History, culture, religious devotion, and a passionate zest for life. Israel is a country of beauty, pride, and wonder. Blessed with cities that pulse with energy, and a breathtakingly diverse landscape, travelers will be spoiled by the beauty of its hills and valleys, the salty stillness of the Dead Sea, the multi-hued canyon of Makhtesh Ramon, and the ancient walls and pathways of Nazareth and Jerusalem. For a spiritual awakening, visit the Old City of Jerusalem. Long considered one of the world’s holiest sites, a walk through its cobblestone passages is sure to provide travelers with a window into ancient beliefs. Abundant, colorful markets overflow with mouth-watering delights, and local eateries churn out stone-baked flat bread soon to be dunked in hand-painted bowls brimming with freshly made hummus.
