The serpentine byways of the Old City of Jerusalem…
The back alleys of Tel Aviv and Jaffa – and the stories they tell
The magically buoyant healing waters of the Dead Sea…
The orange cliffs and dunes of the desert against the setting sun…
The museums that make Israel a cultural hot spot
The vast ancient cit carved into rock at Petra…
The finest restaurants… and the most amazing street food

Whether you’re a first-timer or experienced Israel traveler, come with us to the amazing melting pot that is Tel Aviv, to the magic of the ancient city of Jerusalem, the healing waters of the Dead Sea and the almost supernatural landscape of the Negev – with a special side trip across the Jordanian border to historic Petra.
