Although Israel is a tiny country, the energy and diversity that is contained within its small footprint is remarkable. Israel offers a world in one country. If you are hankering for the Alps, you can ski in the north; swim with the dolphins; or float at one of the earth’s most spectacular wonders, the Dead Sea, in the south. It will feel like you have toured several different countries thanks to the mix of cultures and personalities of the cities of Israel. Each city has a very distinct vibe. Jerusalem will appeal to your spiritual side, while Tel Aviv throbs with energy and excitement, and other cities like Haifa or Safed are more laid back.
Israel is where ancient meets modern – you can walk in the same footprints as King David, Jesus or the prophets and at the same time marvel at modern architectural buildings like the Azrieli Towers with their three distinct shapes in Tel Aviv? Israel is home to the three monotheistic religions – Judaism, Christianity and Islam were born in this region. Where else in the world can you pray (and slip a note) into the Wailing Wall while hearing the Imam call the Muslim faithful to prayer and the church bells peal all at the same time? Whether exploring religion, spirituality, history, or natural and man-made wonders — Israel will amaze you with its incredible depth and breadth!
