Book your holiday to Israel with Wendy Wu Tours
Israel holidays promise astounding antiquity, deep spirituality and a landscape of striking contrasts.
The heart and soul of Israel and the Palestinian territories is ancient Jerusalem, a city that has played a pivotal role in thousands of years’ worth of history. Below a skyline sculpted by the architecture of the Muslims, Christians and Jews that covert it as a holy place, you’ll discover bustling streets where cultures converge, something that is particularly well demonstrated by the city’s fantastic food scene.
Outside of the ancient city, a holiday to Israel boasts plenty of astounding sights and relics.
The trendy Mediterranean port of Tel Aviv is both ancient and cosmopolitan, boasting famous architecture, endless beaches, world- class cuisine and a host of UNESCO-listed buildings.
The Roman period has also left a rich legacy. The ancient Phoenician founded settlement of Caesarea is famous for its historic harbour, a marvel of the ancient world, whilst Tiberias is rich in archaeological remains and renowned as one of Israel's four holy cities.
Perhaps most impressive of all, and certainly one of the most popular highlights of any Israel holiday, Masada Fortress sits atop a high cliff face that overlooks the Dead Sea. One of the last strongholds in the Jewish rebellion against the Roman empire, the fables surrounding the eventual storming of the fortress are as dramatic as the location itself.
For Christians this is the Holy Land. Tours of this region take in many many important sites associated with the life of Jesus including his birthplace, Bethlehem and the Sea of Galilee, the site of the miracle of the loaves and fishes.
At the hub of so many Mediterranean empires it's no wonder that the fusion of cultures have blessed Israel with a delectable cuisine. Blending African and Middle Eastern influences, and with a vibrant street food culture, tasty treats run the gamut from sfenj, a Morrocan take on doughnuts to khachapuri, a delicious Georgian bread stuffed with egg and cheese.
Whatever you look from cultuel to cuisine, adventure to relaxation, a holiday to Israel fits the bill in so many ways.
Israel offers a wealth of wonderful sights and experiences. What better way to explore them than on a Wendy Wu tour?
