Whatever your interests, archeology, history, religion, enjoying the sun and surf, floating in the dead sea, food, museums, or just hanging out, you will be enchanted with Israel.  It is easy to get around this tiny country by public transportation or rental car and there is so much to see.

(If you are like us and like to visit universities, we can give you some advise.)

Some of the highlights include the Jerusalem, with its churches, religious sites for many religions, and its magnificent Israel Museum. Bethlehem is nearby. Visit Masada and then float in the Dead Sea. Like busy cities, visit Tel Aviv and see its nightlife and street art. Visit the Negev by Jeep and see how Israel is reclaiming the desert. Or go north to Caesarea and Haifa. Or west to the disputed areas of Samaria, the east of Jordan.
