This is the type of things you do just once and that´s enough. The place is amazing and the view it´s just breath taking. The only thing is that you need to come early before the heat of the day starts or you will end...More

The weather was cool and there was a drizzle of rain but it did not stop us from being bowled over by this incredible mountaintop fortress. We took the cable car up and down although you can of course do it on foot. Be prepared...More

Site so diverse and well-done. Herod's Palace was amazing and it's not even clear that he ever visited. Dramatic views and interesting little movie at the beginning.

Amazing history and should absolutely be on this your list of places to see in Israel. The drive from Jerusalem is stunning. There is a gondola that will take you to the top so you don't need to walk up. Go early as it gets...More

Also, as you go, notice the tremendous drop in the level of the Dead Sea. You'll see evidence of where it has been all along as you do, and where it is now. Since the 1950's, it has dropped more than 130 feet!
