History and Diversity
Visit the Holy Land's sacred sites

As the cradle of the world's three great monotheistic faiths - Judaism, Christianity and Islam, Israel is a fascinating kaleidoscope of ancient history and religious diversity with a host of important spiritual and sacred sites from Jerusalem to the Sea of Galilee and with our knowledgeable tour guides you'll learn all about these fascinating places and more.

Recommended places to visit in Israel

As the cradle of three of the world's major religions, there's a staggering wealth of religious monuments and sacred sites to seek out in Israel as well as modern cities and attractive bodies of water. Here's our pick of the best to get you started.

Jerusalem

Temple of the Mount | Jerusalem | Israel

At the forefront of Christianity, Judaism and Islam, Jerusalem is one of the oldest cities in the world and brimming with sacred sites, historic monuments and remarkably well-preserved architecture. Must-see sights include the beautiful Old City, stunning 7th century Dome of the Rock, revered Wailing Wall, Church of Holy Sepulchre, plus the amazing views from Mount of Olives.

Tel Aviv

Tel Aviv Coastline | Israel

Arguably the trendiest destination in The Middle East, Tel Aviv is where you’ll find modern art galleries, cool cafes, artisan boutiques, fine dining and wonderful theatres. Set on a gorgeous stretch of the Mediterranean coast, this ever-changing metropolis is Israel’s cultural capital but despite its modern vibe you can still discover remnants of its ancient past in Old Jaffa, just south of the city.

Nazareth

Best known as the home of Jesus and the Virgin Mary, Nazareth contains a number of Christian holy sites. The Old City has a charming architectural beauty with narrow cobbled lanes just begging to be explored, while modern day Nazareth on the other hand is a vibrant Arab city with a small town feel. Make sure you visit the Basilica of the Annunciation, St Gabriel’s Church and the Greek Catholic Synagogue-Church.

Dead Sea

Dead Sea | Israel

Once one of nature’s best kept secrets, today the buoyant waters of the Dead Sea attract throngs of travellers every year in search of its therapeutic properties and astounding beauty. No trip to Israel would be complete without rejuvenating body and soul here – bob in its warm turquoise waters, slap on some mineral-rich Dead Sea mud and while away the day.

Sea of Galilee

Sea of Galilee | Israel

Best known for its Gospel associations with Jesus Christ, the Sea of Galilee is a natural pilgrimage sites for Christians, but there is so much more to it. As the largest freshwater lake in Israel with beaches, hiking trails and water sports, the area is also a prime recreational spot. Travellers will find the ancient fishing village of Capernaum and the holy city of Tiberias on its shores too.
