Treasures of Israel

A tour of Israel and the Palestinian territories is a walk through both the history books and the scriptures. But this is no living museum. Coastal cities such as Tel Aviv are vibrant, modern and positively Mediterranean, while the Dead Sea offers relaxation and high-level luxury. This tour combines the ancient Biblical cities of Jerusalem, Nazareth and Acre with cosmopolitan Tel Aviv, while discovering ancient ruins in coastal Caesarea, Capernaum on the shores of the Sea of Galilee, and Masada above the Dead Sea.
