Hello! My husband, myself and our 14 month old son will be travelling to Israel for 8 days in early March. I hope you can help us put together an itinerary that will be fun but also not too stressful for our little one!
We'd like to see as much as possible in the way of major tourist attractions/natural wonders/historical sites/world heritage sites. But I'm hoping we can make it work with only 2-3 hotel stays so as not to disrupt the baby's schedule too much. We also have a limited budget, so low/mid range options are the best for us with maybe one potential splurge. Maybe $80-$130/night hotel stays including breakfast.
First thing, we arrive in Tel Aviv (from Denmark) at like 4am on a Saturday (3am our time). We will need some kind of place to rest for at least a few hours when we first arrive, and a way to get there since it is Shabbat. Any ideas? Should we stay in Tel Aviv for more than that one day?
We'd also like to go to Jerusalem and the Dead Sea, and possibly north to Tiberias/Nazareth/Caesarea/Haifa.
I think the easiest thing in our case would be to hire a driver for day trips. But have no clue what the cost is! Also, we need to balance the few hotels with the amount of driving per day, which can't be excessive for the baby's sake.
We depart on the following Sunday from Tel Aviv in the afternoon.
Hope that is enough info and I really hope you all can help me put a nice trip together and give me some hotel tips. This used to be my favorite part of holidays but now with a toddler I don't have enough time to do all of the research!
