Israel

MAR. 15-24, 2020
Tel Aviv, Sea of Galilee, Jerusalem, Masada, Dead Sea

Join us for eight nights in Israel, an inspiring nation showcasing rich history and spiritual milestones. Begin in Tel Aviv and discover the ancient city’s architectural beauty and the oldest port in the world, Jaffa. Journey north to ponder Roman ruins and roam underground labyrinths at Akko’s archaic fort. Inland, sail the Sea of Galilee and gaze at the Mount of Beatitudes. Encounter Capernaum’s House of Peter before experiencing Tel Megiddo’s UNESCO status ruins. Discover Jerusalem’s highlights while visiting a vibrant open-air market, Old Jerusalem, and the Mount of Olives. Then descend into the spectacular Jordan Valley to marvel at the Dead Sea and the fortress of Masada. Along the way, treat your palate to the tastes of Israel – delectable wines, crisp falafels and buttery olive oils – and enjoy fascinating insight, excursions, and interactive talks from local lecturers and guides.
