Israel resonates with the echoes of Biblical history, and in the disputed capital of Jerusalem you can visit sites such as the Temple Mount and Wailing Wall, the Dome of the Rock, and the Mount of Olives.

Tel Aviv is a cosmopolitan, 24-hour city on the Mediterranean coast, ranked by National Geographic in 2010 as one of the world’s top 10 beach cities; and the southern Red Sea city of Eilat is Israel’s premier diving and snorkeling spot.

You can also hike the Israel National Trail – a path that crosses the entire country – follow the Jesus Trail pilgrimage route in Galilee, ski the slopes of the Golan Heights, or bob around the insanely salty Dead Sea.

We have articles about daily life in Tel Aviv, the history and archeology of Jerusalem, where to get the best kubbe soup, or even how to have a snake massage.
