• Pick up from your hotel. We will start our tour driving north of Tel Aviv to visit all coastal cities of Israel Mediterranean.
• First stop is Ancient City of Caesarea Ruins. The Caesarea National Park contains the remains of a prestigious port city
established by Herod the Great, which flourished during the Byzantine period. Visit the Roman Amphitheater, the Hippodrome horse racing arena, and the impressive Roman Aqueducts.
• Mount Carmel Lookout Point. We’ll end our day by standing atop Mount Carmel for a lovely view of the Haifa Bay.
• Bahai gardens are located in Haifa, on the slope of Mount Carmel. This is one of the most popular attractions in Haifa. Incredibly beautiful, well-kept gardens, diverging concentric circles from the temple with a golden dome. Terraces of Bahai gardens – one of the true decorations of Haifa.
• Rosh Hanikra. Driving all the way to Israel’s border with Lebanon the tour takes you to the sea caves of Rosh HaNikra. We will enter the cave chambers and tunnels where waves crash against the rocks.
• Acre. We will return back to Tel Aviv direction by visiting our last activity the Crusader city of Acre. Here we tour the Crusader fortress built in the 12th century, the Ottoman structures and a former Turkish and British Mandate citadel prison.
• Overnight in Tel Aviv.
• Breakfast in hotel.
• Entering the Old City through the Zion Gate.
• Also in Mount Zion is the Tomb of David. The large cenotaph is with a drape on which are embroidered various attributes of King David including the lyre he played, a crown and the words “David, King of Israel lives forever” in Hebrew. As this is a holy site for the Jewish people men and women are separated.
• As we enter the Old City through the Zion gate we are in the Armenian Quarter. We continue to the excavated Byzantine Cardo. Although this fifteen hundred year old main street of Jerusalem was partially destroyed and unused during the Moslem conquest it had a brief new lease of life during the Crusader period and the excavated Crusader shops are now modern stores.
• Continuing through the Jewish Quarter we proceed to the Western Wall (Kotel). This two thousand year old wall is part of the encircling and supporting wall built by king Herod when the Temple Mount area was enlarged.
• Overnight in Jerusalem
• Breakfast in hotel.
• As we descend 1,200 meters from Jerusalem through the wilderness of the Judean Desert to the Dead Sea, we pass the Inn of the Good Samaritan and stop briefly at the “sea level” marker. In the distance we see Jericho, the oldest city in the world, perhaps due to its luxuriant oasis and its proximity to the Dead Sea, an ancient source of salt and we recall the conquest of Jericho by the Israelite tribes, led by Joshua, who had just crossed the Jordan River into the Promised Land. (Josh 6).
• We continue along the shores of the Dead Sea to Masada. As we ascend in the cable car, we look down at the Snake path which was used two thousand years ago when King Herod built this fortress like palace. In fact, there were two palaces, as well as a swimming pool and a well-preserved beautiful bath-house.
• Maintained by a small Roman legion after the death of Herod, it was seized by Jewish zealots at the beginning of the Jewish revolt against the Romans which culminated in the destruction of the Second Temple in the year 70 CE. We stand over the ramp, built for the Romans by their Jewish slaves, which facilitated the breaching of the wall after three years of siege.
• The synagogue, which was built by Herod, proved conclusively to those who doubted that there were synagogues
even while the Second Temple stood. We see where the first piece of parchment to be discovered in an Israeli archaeological excavation was found. And on it, legible to the naked eye were the words of the prophet Ezekiel, the “dry bones” prophecy, ending with the promise “I will take the children of Israel from among the nations and bring them in to their own land … and the nations shall know that I the Lord do sanctify Israel …” (Ezek 37)
• On our return journey we pass the oasis of Ein Gedi where David hid from the wrath of King Saul (I Sam 24:1ff) and Qumran where the two thousand year old Dead Sea Scrolls were discovered.
• Finally we enjoy a therapeutic swim in the Dead Sea, the lowest place on earth, where the water is almost 35% salt and even those who cannot swim can float.
