What to seeTel Aviv
Tel Aviv is a vibrant place, with lots of buzzing restaurants, bars and clubs. The city also has interesting bauhaus architecture around the UNESCO white city, and superb beaches.
The Masada, King Herod’s desert fortress on a hilltop overlooking the Dead Sea, is an amazing place. This was the site of the Jews last stronghold in their war against the Romans in around 73 AD. You can ride a cable car up to the fortress, which commands spectacular views of the area.
With over 3,000 years of history, Jerusalem is one of the world's oldest cities. Highlights include the Wailing Wall, where you can write a wish on a piece of paper and push it between the cracks of the giant stones of the temple of the Western Wall.
