Witness Israel's dizzying development, especially along the Mediterranean coast and around Tel Aviv. You can visit dozens of world-class historic sites dating back thousands of years in Jerusalem and Galilee. Spend some time relaxing in Israel's premier resort of Eilat, on the Red Sea. Informal and upbeat, Israelis work hard and play hard. Join them and enjoy their delicious fusion cuisine and masses of entertainment from high culture to all-night clubs.
Dive into exhilarating Tel Aviv. Just 100 years old, it's Israel's largest and most relaxed city, dominating its cultural and economic life. Travel a short way east to reach gold-domed Jerusalem, more than 3000 years old, and today Israel's capital and political and religious centre. Head north to fertile Galilee, and south to explore the spectacular Negev desert and the Red Sea beach resort of Eilat.
Stroll Tel Aviv's long beachside promenade and shop for affordable designer fashions. Be entertained by the city's world-class orchestras, modern dance and opera, or if you prefer, all-night clubs and music venues. See the Dead Sea Scrolls at Jerusalem's Israel Museum, gaze at revered Biblical sites and explore the awesome Old City. Haifa is the north's attractive capital. In the south, indulge yourself at Eilat's upmarket resort hotels, bordering the Sinai Desert.
See charming little towns like Safad in the gentle fertile hills of Israel's north-east, and travel around the Sea of Galilee visiting its beautiful Biblical sites, nature reserves and archaeological remains. Check out the wine-growing Carmel Hills, one of the highlights of the attractive Mediterranean strip. In the southern half of the country, float in the weirdly salty Dead Sea and explore the Negev Desert's awesome wilderness, with spectacular landscapes and historical sites from long-gone civilisations.
