There is a great deal of history coupled with amazing views. A must if you visit Israel. It is a couple of hours from Tel Aviv or Jerusalem but well worth the trip. Hike to the top or take the cable car. Amazing vistas.

Wish we had had more time to spend here. The views are amazing, but the history of the place is legendary. We rode the aerial tram up the mountain and spent time exploring the ruins. I _wish we had allowed rid to walk down.

May have been centuries ago, the proud Jews of Masada wrote heroic history with their blood, the beauty and wisdom in their planning remains of great awe to spectactors of this age. The splendid views of the blue Dead Sea and contrasting background are an epitome of perfect nature that brings 'healing' to the inner man. Highly recommended for the... More

Masada is a must see! It's a nice walk to the top, especially when the weather is good! The view from the top is brilliant, you can see for miles! It is a well preserved site and they haven't ruined it by putting cafe's anywhere!

Amazing place full of history, but you need a guide or you'll find it boring. I didn't know any of the history but learned a lot about it while there because of the guide.

If you like history, you must go to see Masada when visit Israel. The panoramas are beautiful. If you like and can do hiking, spend a night at the Masada hostel that is located just below the entrance to the park and hike in the morning to the top using the snake trail. It worth it, especially on sunrise! If... More
