Holidays to Israel & the OPT by Cox & Kings

Israel & the occupied Palestinian territories (OPT) is a fascinating destination, deeply steeped in history. It is a land full of powerful stories, which are brought to life in the ancient remnants and biblical sites scattered throughout. Walking through Jerusalem is akin to wandering through the pages of history, and with monuments sacred to all 3 major monotheistic religions, the city holds a significant status for Christians, Jews and Muslims alike.

Visit Nazareth, described as the childhood home of Jesus, and relax by the Sea of Galilee, referred to in the scriptures. Coastal cities and seaside towns like Haifa, Acre and Eliat provide the opportunity to explore and relax; or be soothed by the waters of the Dead Sea. Meanwhile, the rich modernity of Tel Aviv showcases another side to Israel, with its vibrant nightlife, street cafés and Mediterranean beaches.
