Very nice winter Friday (Jewish Saturday to westerners) morning was great for being on the harbor. Great place for Christians to visit the ancient port where several significant biblical events occurred. Just a few blocks from the harbor, many shops, restaurants, bars, and the famous...More
We enjoyed a visit to Jaffa on our second day in Israel, & being hosted by friends with local knowledge was a bonus. It's a gorgeously restored old port town, now part of Tel Aviv, full of history, atmosphere, art, good food with a friendly...More

Jaffa is a wonderful part of the city of Tel Aviv with a historical background very rich for Muslims, Jews as well as Christians. It was an amazing experience visiting this old part of the city with my teenagers.I would recommend for any person who...More
So cool during both the night and the day, go look around all the parts, its very interesting.. especially the Jewish and the Armenian quarter, the Christian and Muslim are actually quite similar because of the extended bazar. While the Jewish and Armenian have a...More
We obtained a bright color tourist map from our hotel concierge and walked Old Jaffa. We had read a guide book, and thoroughly enjoyed our walking tour. This town is on the Mediterranean, and it was a 3/4 mile walk from our hotel. Just beautiful...More

This year we have both Passover and the Catholic, Greek Orthodox and Coptic Ester falling on the same day!! For all those who are planning to visit Jerusalem during the Holiday, here is some vital information regarding visiting the Old City and the Christian sites: Apr 9 – Palm Sunday. Between 07:00-14:00 there will be a ceremony at the Church of the Holy Sepulcher and it is advised not to try getting there as entering the church will be limited by the police according to the different...More

Small hotel with historic character in Jerusalem? (11 Replies)
Hi wise advisors, My husband and I are planning our first trip to Israel the first week of November. We will stay in Jerusalem and then go to Tel Aviv for business for my husband. Since we arrive Nov. 2, a Monday, I am planning to go straight to Jerusalem and stay until Friday the 6th, since it appears that closures on Friday and Saturday would affect our touring in Jerusalem. (right?) During that time we will do a day trip to Masada and the Dead Sea and maybe the Ein Gedi Spa. ...More

<<3. Since we love hiking, what is the best half-day hike nearby that you would recommend?>> A half-day hike, including getting there and back? I'm a big hiker, but I'm inclined to say that you shouldn't bother given your limited time in Israel. Most of the good hiking is in the north (2-3 hours from J'lem/TLV) or the south (2+ hours away). The hiking close to the Center (TLV/J'lem) is really not that remarkable. For example, you could hike in the Jerusalem Mountains -- look...More
3rd trip report (3 Replies)
After a good nights sleep Monday we were up at our regular time of 5:30 and organizing our day. We had a big breakfast at the Harmony and met Sam for a trip to Jericho and Masada.I kept my eyes on the road as this will be the way we'll drive up to Bet Shean later on. Jericho was fantastic. All the history at the Tel and looking at the towers in the ground was just amazing. We didn't go up to the Monastery as there was only one person present and they hadn't opened yet. We bought fresh fruit...More
