Afterwards you continue towards Haifa, where you stop to visit the historical German Colony neighborhood. Enjoy the tour of the Stella Maris Monastery and see the amazing, world-renowned Baha’i Shrine, with its spectacular gardens cascading down the mountainside!

Next is Rosh HaNikra, Israel’s northernmost point along the coast, near the Lebanese border. The cable car takes you down into the remarkable grottoes, created by the collision of waves against the rocks – a stunning display of nature! You can also discover the remains of the Mandate-era railway to Lebanon. Then southwards to Acre, Israel’s largest Crusader city, where we marvel at its magnificent architecture and bustling markets, and tour fascinating structures from the Turkish and British mandate periods.

Today you tour Nazareth, where you will visit the Church of Annunciation and the Church of St. Joseph. You then continue to the famous Sea of Galilee, the waters where Jesus walked!

At Capernaum, on the shore of the Galilee, you tour the Church of the Multiplication in Tabgha, and then make your way along the shoreline, with the magnificent backdrop of the Golan Heights across the water.

Day 3
A Tour of Masada and the Dead Sea
  • Masada National Park
  • The Dead Sea
  • The Judean Desert

After morning pick-up, our experienced tour guide takes you south towards the sandy plains of the Judean Desert, and onwards, to sea level. At sea level, you stop to view the magical desert vista, while the ancient city of Jericho lies in the distance. Then onwards, even lower, to the lowest place on earth – the Dead Sea! Look out for the Inn of the Good Samaritan on the way!

You make your way to the Dead Sea, following the salty shoreline towards Masada, where King Herod built his fortress, and the last Jewish outpost during the Roman era. Ascend to the top of the mountain in the cable car, and after touring the ruins, you head back to the Dead Sea, passing the lush desert oasis of Ein Gedi on the way, as well as Qumran, site of the discovery of the 2,000 year old Dead Sea scrolls.

The rest of the day is spent at the Dead Sea, relaxing on the beach and in its waters, so dense with salt that it keeps you afloat! The Dead Sea mud is a natural mask, which you can spread on your skin, and then soak up the brilliant desert sun.

Overnight stay in Jerusalem

Afterwards, you walk through the Via Dolorosa, making your way along the traditional pilgrim route to the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, site of Jesus’ crucifixion and his empty tomb from where he was resurrected.

Before leaving the Old City, you can enjoy the lively market with its sights, smells, and sounds. You then depart through the Jaffa Gate for a short tour of the New City.
