Sight Visited

  • Jerusalem

    Jerusalem is the city with a fourth dimension. If most cities are three-dimensional, then Jerusalem has an added fourth dimension, a spiritual one. A surreal place holy to Jews, Muslims and Christians and therefore significant to over one-third of all people on earth.

  • Nazareth

    Nazareth, in the lower Galilee, is located in the heart of a valley surrounded by mountains that embrace several of the most important Christian sites in the world. This is a city of religion and faith, of spirituality and holiness, but also a city with a rich history, fascinating archeology, modern culture and Middle Eastern charm.

  • Tel Aviv
    Tel Aviv

    Tel Aviv is one of the most vibrant cities in the world. Titled the ‘Mediterranean Capital of Cool’ by the New York Times, this is a 24 hour city with a unique pulse, combining sandy Mediterranean beaches with a world-class nightlife, a buzzing cultural scene, incredible food, UNESCO recognized architecture, and an international outlook.

A small change of scenery as you continue the discovery of New City. You cap the day off at the famous Carmel Market full of various spices, flowers, accessories and delicious food. In the afternoon we depart for Jerusalem.

Discovery launches at full speed with a hike up to Mount Of Olives - a Jewish cemetery of 3,000 years with around 150,000 graves; and Gethsemane. Climb up Mt. Zion just outside the city walls, then visit Church of the Holy Sepulchre, the Cenacle - room of the Last Supper, and Jaffa gate. The enlightening Jerusalem experience will leave you blown away.
