Land of Creation
Surprisingly diverse for such a narrow strip of land pressed against the Mediterranean, modern Israel only dates back to 1948, though the history of this "Holy Land" spans many millennia. The big three monotheistic religions--Christianity, Judaism, and Islam--maintain extremely strong ties to this part of the world, so you can expect to see plenty of historic churches, mosques, and synagogues during your holiday in Israel. Beyond the undeniable cultural appeal, Israel also offers impressive natural features, including the Dead Sea and Makhtesh Ramon, one of the world's biggest craters. As you tour Israel, you'll find yourself following in the footsteps of figures that helped shape the world thousands of years ago.

Emilia-Romagna is one of Europe's wealthiest and most developed areas, stretching between the Po Valley in the north and the Apennine Mountains in the south. This is a land of diverse people and diverse landscapes. The striking contrast between the mountainous areas and the long Adriatic coastline offers some of Italy's most spectacular views. The region has a rich cultural and artistic heritage, with a vibrant music scene that is quickly gaining international prestige. Emilia-Romagna produces a range of fine wines as well as a variety of culinary delights, including gold-colored egg pastas like tortellini and tagliatelle. Farther from the tourism-driven coastal areas, the region features a tranquil countryside dotted with parks and nature preserves, ideal for those looking to spend some time hiking, horseback riding, or cycling on their holiday.
