Called the "White City" thanks to the color of its World Heritage-listed architectural landmarks, Tel Aviv serves as Israel's modern and cosmopolitan second city.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like International Center Mary of Nazareth and Bahai Gardens and Shrine. Appreciate the collections at Independence Hall Museum and Mada Tech - The Israel National Museum Of Science. Venture out of the city with trips to Magdala (in Migdal), Cana (in Nazareth) and Beit She'an National Park (in Beit She'an). Spend the 24th (Wed) exploring nature at Zippori National Park. And it doesn't end there: examine the collection at Yitzhak Rabin Center, explore the striking landscape at Arbel National Park, kick back and relax at Jerusalem Beach, and stroll through Bograshov Beach.

Few places in the world boast such a long history and such a rich multiethnic culture as Jerusalem, a city sacred to Jews, Muslims, and Christians.
Let the collections at The Masada Museum and Bible Lands Museum capture your imagination. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Herodyon National Park and Church of All Nations (Basilica of the Agony). Change things up with these side-trips from Jerusalem: Ein Gedi Botanical Garden (in Ein Gedi), Ein Bokek (Bokek River & Ein Bokek Beach) and Masada National Park (in Masada). There's lots more to do: identify plant and animal life at En Gedi Nature Reserve, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Dome of the Rock, explore the wealth of natural beauty at Bet Guvrin-Maresha National Park, and delve into the distant past at Herod's Western Palace.
