Middle East

Israel

On the shore of the Mediterranean Sea, the Promised Land of the Middle East, a place of religion and history for many civilisations, reaches out to the inner faith in each traveller. From the worry free city of Tel Aviv boasting long beaches, paved alleyways and contemporary art museum to the sacred citadel of Jerusalem where the western wall welcomes pilgrims from all over the world, Israel is a land of contrast. The Holy Land also boast a large desert – the Negev, the azure shores of the Dead Sea, the incredible site of Massada, the lush valleys of Mont Carmel, the Christian sacred city of Nazareth, the gigantic Lake Tiberias, the medieval synagogues and kibbutzim erected during the pioneering days.
