In the disputed capital of Jerusalem, you can visit sites like the Temple Mount and Wailing Wall, the Dome of the Rock, and the Mount of Olives.

Here, eras collide. Tel Aviv — on the more-modern hand — is a cosmopolitan, 24-hour city on the Mediterranean coast, ranked by National Geographic as one of the world's top 10 beach cities. Not to be overlooked, the southern Red Sea city of Eilat is Israel's premier diving and snorkeling spot. Israel's waters run sacred and supreme.

Back on land, you can hike the Israel National Trail - a path that crosses the entire country - make a pilgrimage along the Jesus Trail in Galilee, ski the slopes of the Golan Heights, or bob around the insanely salty Dead Sea. You may even find yourself in wine country. From markets to masada, from the sea and back, Matador has you covered below.
