From the seemingly miraculous waters of the Dead Sea to Cana of Galilee where Jesus is said to have performed his first miracle of turning water into wine-this fascinating tour of Israel is full of incredible sights, scenery, and stories. The historical and biblical tales begin in Tel Aviv, the 'Mediterranean Manhattan,' continue to the Mount of Beatitudes where it is believed Jesus delivered his Sermon on the Mount, and culminate at the lowest (yet most uplifting)point on the surface of the Earth-the Dead Sea where you'll effortlessly float at 430 meters below sea level. Discover the fascinating city of Jerusalem and dive into numerous UNESCO World Heritage Sites-including the golden-domed Baha'i Shrine in Haifa and the ancient clifftop fortress of Masada-not to mention some of the most delectable dishes of Mediterranean and Middle Eastern cuisine.
