Israel

Overview

For the three monotheistic religions – Judaism, Catholicism, and Islam – Israel is a place for holy pilgrimage. Devouts from all over the world flock the rugged terrains of West Bank, where the ancient cities of Nazareth, Jerusalem, and Bethlehem stand strong despite years of political conflict. While there, watch the Masada Sunrise from the mountains, take a dip in the Dead Sea, and retrace history from one heritage site to another. The Jewish state is also home to ethnically diverse locals, which explains the liberal attitude of Tel Aviv. See colorful street art, try trendy restaurants, take photos of Bauhaus-style architecture, and sunbathe by Metzitzim Beach after a spiritual cleansing.

ISRAEL’S LARGEST ARAB CITY

Nazareth

Nazareth, located in Israel’s Galilee region not only has over a dozen important Christian sites, but as Israel’s largest Arab city, has some fascinating cultural sites and experiences to savor. The Pope came to Israel in early 2009, and Nazareth was one of the areas given big government grants to improve its tourism infrastructure for this. As a result, Nazareth has been given a push back onto Israel’s tourism map – and with its importance as the childhood home of Jesus, as the largest Arab city in Israel, and its stunning location right in the middle of the Lower Galilee, it’s a fascinating place.

ROCK-CUT ARCHITECTURE

Petra

Were you thrilled by the Hollywood movie, ‘The Mummy Returns’ and its mysterious backdrop of rock-cut tombs somewhere in the middle east? Those were not just movie-sets, but a UNESCO recognised World Heritage Site- the ruins of an ancient city- Petra in Jordan. Petra enjoys a fortress-like protection by the towering rocks around it. It has an entrance from the east, barely 10 feet wide, called the Siq, which was formed of a crevice in the sandstone rocks. The first structure from this side is the Treasury building, created by modifying a cliff.
