ISRAEL HOT SPOTS

TEL AVIV-JAFFA

Tel-Aviv Opens new window – majestic in beauty and rich in culture – with a unique history all of its own. Tel-Aviv proudly boasts museums, opera, theatres, music and dance, and fine cuisine.

 

If Israel is a culinary superpower, Tel Aviv is its capital. Between the falafel stands and the gourmet restaurants that earn multiple forks in the Gault-Millau guide – not to mention a wide spectrum of Chinese, Italian, seafood and meat restaurants – a unique culinary culture has blossomed, unmatched by any other food mecca.

 

The Tel-Aviv-Jaffa metropolitan area is comfortably situated along the shores of the Mediterranean. Visitors can enjoy a 10 km promenade, clean sand beaches, lounge chairs, ice-cream vendors and diehard beach-lovers that swim daily, winter and summer, no matter when.

 

Tel-Aviv, the first Hebrew city in modern times, was founded in 1909. The center of the city is mostly a result of a pioneering urban design by Sir Patrick Geddes in 1927-1929. In July 2003, UNESCO, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, proclaimed the unique urban and historical fabric of Tel-Aviv-Jaffa, known as the “White City”, as a World Cultural Heritage site.

 

By this proclamation, the international community recognized the exceptional architectural qualities of the buildings, streets, squares and avenues of Tel-Aviv. This is the world’s largest cluster of buildings in the International Style, also known as Bauhaus.

 

JERUSALEM

Jerusalem welcomes its visitors with a perfect mix of modernity and history, culture, and religion. The city is bursting with iconic venues and innovative spaces, rich with a tapestry of identities, faiths, and narratives. Over three billion people of faith look to Jerusalem for inspiration and to connect with the cultures that converge on this unique hilltop.

 

Alongside the city’s 3,000 years of history, for the discerning and well-travelled millennial, Jerusalem provides an exotic location with a vibrant nightlife and cultural scene, and is just a short haul destination for tourists from the UK and Europe.

 

Jerusalem has many attractions for culture lovers and offers an array of events and festivals that take place throughout the year.

 

The Old City, with its quaint alleys and captivating heritage, is highly recommended. Whether you seek religious sanctity or cultural enrichment, the Old City offers it all. The Western Wall, The City of David, The Via Dolorosa and The Dome of the Rock, are just a few of the many historical and biblical sites which attract visitors.

 

Once you leave the Old City, the new city offers many other sites of cultural, music, art, and gastronomical interest. There are many museums to visit, including the top ranking Israel Museum with the Shrine of the Book, Bible Lands Museum, Museum for Islamic Art, etc. Visitors may also stroll through neighborhoods with inspiring, magnificent views, such as Yemin Moshe, the German Colony and Ein Kerem.

 

Ben Gurion Airport is merely a 40 minute drive from Jerusalem, while other major cities and important sights such as Masada, Dead Sea, Haifa and Tel Aviv are easily accessible.

 

THE DEAD SEA

The Dead Sea is the lowest place on earth, a place of beauty, and a place you should really visit during your time in Israel.

 

Really just a lake, the Dead Sea is part of the long border between Israel and Jordan whose towering mountains can be seen from the Israeli side, part of the Judean and Negev deserts. The Dead Sea is a place popular with Israeli’s wanting a few days relaxation, people, taking advantage of the medical properties of the water, as well as tourists staying for a short time to experience the unique Sea and surroundings. People famously cover themselves in the mineral-rich mud and float in the salty waters at the beaches which line the shores of the Dead Sea.

 

Masada & Ein Gedi

 

Masada, is, aside from the Dead Sea itself, the great attraction of the area. Atop a mountain to the side of the Sea lies this ancient fortress. With a steep history and ascent, Masada is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is traditionally climbed early in the morning by tourists wishing to see the ruins at the top as the sun rises over the Dead Sea and mountains of Jordan in the distance. Today it is not necessary to climb, as a cable car has been built.

 

Further North near the Dead Sea is the Ein Gedi National Park. Situated in the famous Kibbutz, this park contains a range of cool water hiking trails which allow you to cool off in the heat. The higher you go, the quieter it will be and the more likely you will be able to find your own little oasis.

 

Ein Gedi also has a public beach and spa which is much closer to Jerusalem than the majority of the beaches, if you have less time.

 

THE NORTH

The North of Israel is a land of immense natural beauty, historic and religious significance, and demographic diversity.

 

Israel’s Northern Coastline is home to some of the most impressive historical sites, natural beaches and works of nature, and diverse and interesting places to visit. The north coast of Israel includes areas like Mount Carmel, Ramat Hanadiv, Nahariya, Akko and much more. Exploring the north coast of Israel offers breathtaking beauty, pristine nature and some of the most stunning views in all of Israel. Read more here about the north coast of Israel and what areas should be included when exploring this region.

 

The Galilee is one of the most beautiful regions of Israel. Situated in the north of the country, it is characterized by its beautiful lush landscape with agriculture, amazing natural landforms, historic sites, and quaint rural villages.

 

The Golan Heights are a green rocky plateau located to the east of the Sea of Galilee in the far north of Israel. About 40 miles from north to south, and an average of 12 mils from east to west, it is a relatively small region. Despite its size, the Golan Heights is very important, supplying Israel with over one third of its water, and, historically as the site of many important battles.

 

The Golan Heights contains some of Israel’s most beautiful spots, shaped by the rugged and in places lunar landscape. Its great resource – water has created green landscapes, and some beautiful water-features. The Saar Falls are arguably Israel’s most spectacular waterfalls, competing for the honor with the Banias Waterfall, the most iconic and largest waterfall in Israel set within the Banias Nature Reserve, with a great selection of hikes as well as some important history.

 

Mount Bental offers literally breathtaking views across both Israel’s Galilee and the flat plains of Syria. A cafe here called Koffee Anan is a clever pun – it means Coffee in the Clouds in Hebrew, and is the name of the past head of the UN – you’ll see the significance of this if you visit.

 

The Sea of Galilee (the Kinneret) is a magnificent geographical marvel surrounded by pretty rural agricultural settlements.

 

Famous because of its prominence among New Testament writings (as is the whole of the Galilee as the place Jesus lived), the Sea of Galilee is one of the earliest settled areas in the Land of Israel and boasts archaeological ruins sitting alongside some of the first pioneering settlements in Israel, as well as religious sites, modern cities, and endless outdoor pursuits.
