There's much more to do: get engrossed in the history at Yad Vashem - The World Holocaust Remembrance Center, see the interesting displays at The Israel Museum, Jerusalem, admire the landmark architecture of Eglise du Saint-Sepulcre, and let your taste buds guide you at a local gastronomic tour.

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.
