Bordered by Egypt to the south, Lebanon to the North and Jordan and Syria in the East, Israel isn’is a beautiful country with a great history . There are marvellous old cities, fantastic beaches, great cuisine and, of course, plenty of holy places.


The most popular destination in Israel is Jerusalem and for good reason; with its beautiful mosques, a church on every corner and many places of biblical importance. For an incredible view of the old city be sure to go to the original campus location for the Hebrew University , Mount Scopus . If you move to the other side of the university campus you can look out over the Judean Desert towards Jordan and on clear days it’s even possible to see the Dead Sea and the Moab mountains of Jordan in the background.


If you’re looking for a place with a real party atmosphere then Tel Aviv is the place. It has excellent beaches, a colourful nightlife and top restaurants, which are probably the best to be found for a 1,000 miles in all directions. If scuba diving is your thing then the Red Sea beach resort of Eilat is the place to visit. Located on the southern most tip of Israel , this is an extremely popular fun in the sun destination.
