Tel Aviv, a city on Israel’s Mediterranean coast, is marked by stark 1930s Bauhaus buildings, thousands of which are clustered in the White City architectural area. Museums include Beit Hatfutsot, whose multimedia exhibits illustrate the history of Jewish communities worldwide. The Eretz Israel Museum covers the country’s archaeology, folklore and crafts, and features an on-site excavation of 12th-century-B.C. ruins.
The Tel Aviv Museum of Art highlights Israeli and European modernism, with notable works by French impressionists and Pablo Picasso. The city is also known for its accessible beaches and vibrant nightlife ranging from Lilienblum Street’s lounges to Dizengoff Street’s open-air cafes. Tel Aviv Port’s waterfront promenade is lined with shops and restaurants, and the chic Neve Tzedek neighborhood has high-end fashion boutiques. The metropolitan area includes the once-separate town of Jaffa, whose Old City is a maze of galleries, Crusader ruins, flea markets and minarets.
Jerusalem, a Middle Eastern city west of the Dead Sea, has been a place of pilgrimage and worship for Jews, Christians and Muslims since the biblical era. Its Old City has significant religious sites around the Temple Mount compound, including the Western Wall (sacred to Judaism), the Church of the Holy Sepulchre (a Christian pilgrimage site) and the Dome of the Rock (a 7th-century Islamic shrine with a gold dome).
The walled Old City is accessed by Damascus Gate and Jaffa Gate, near the Tower of David, or Citadel. It's also home to lead-domed Al-Aqsa, one of Islam’s holiest mosques. Its narrow alleys contain jumbled Arab bazaars, sidewalk cafes and carts selling traditional street food like falafel. Modern Jerusalem has the Israel Museum, exhibiting archaeological finds and Judaica like the Dead Sea Scrolls; the Holocaust memorial Yad Vashem; and the L.A. Mayer Memorial Museum of Islamic Art.
Eilat is a southern Israeli port and resort town on the Red Sea, near Jordan. Its beaches are noted for their calm waters, like Dolphin Reef, where the aquatic mammals are often spotted. Known for snorkeling and diving, Coral Beach Nature Reserve has buoy-marked underwater trails among fish-filled reefs. Nearby Coral World Underwater Observatory Marine Park has a glass-enclosed observation center submerged offshore.
Spanning the hotel-lined waterfront, North Beach is the central site for swimming, water sports and boating. Kings City is an amusement park with a biblical theme. The International Birding and Research Center encompasses a salt marsh with observation points for viewing migratory birds. At the Botanical Garden of Eilat, trails run through terraced plantings. In the Negev Desert 30 kilometers north, Timna Valley Park features hiking routes to ancient copper mines and the Solomon’s Pillars sandstone formation. The Yotvata Hai-Bar Nature Reserve harbors rare animals like the Arabian oryx and African wild ass.
Haifa is a northern Israeli port city built in tiers extending from the Mediterranean up the north slope of Mount Carmel. The city’s most iconic sites are the immaculately landscaped terraces of the Bahá'í Gardens and, at their heart, the gold-domed Shrine of the Báb. At the foot of the gardens lies the German Colony, with shops, galleries and restaurants in 19th-century buildings.
In the hilltop Carmel district, the Louis Promenade provides panoramic views. On the western edge of Mount Carmel, the Stella Maris Monastery has a 19th-century church known for its colorful interior. Near the monastery is an aerial cable car that travels down to the Bat Galim Beach Promenade, where you can stroll and dine along the waterfront. Along the western coast, Dado Beach is popular. Elsewhere, the Haifa Museum of Art exhibits contemporary works, and the Israel National Museum of Science, Technology and Space presents interactive displays.
Tiberias is an Israeli city on the western shore of the Sea of Galilee. Its Old City holds important Jewish and Christian pilgrimage sites including the Tomb of Maimonides and Abulafia (Etz Chaim) Synagogue. The waterfront features the restaurant-lined Yigal Allon Promenade, a marina and a fish market. South of the city, Hamat Tiberias National Park is home to famed mineral hot springs dating to antiquity.
The Dead Sea – bordering Israel, the West Bank and Jordan – is a salt lake whose banks are more than 400m below sea level, the lowest point on dry land. Its famously hypersaline water makes floating easy, and its mineral-rich black mud is used for therapeutic and cosmetic treatments at area resorts. The surrounding desert offers many oases and historic sites.
In Israel, Ein Bokek is where most resorts are clustered, along with a public beach. To the north is the oasis Ein Gedi, with waterfalls and tropical vegetation, and Masada, the bluff-top ruins of a 1st-century B.C. fortress, visitable by aerial tramway. The West Bank is home to Qumran National Park, the ancient cave complex where the Dead Sea Scrolls were discovered. Jordan has luxury resorts, nature parks and Biblical sites like Mount Nebo, where Moses was said to have seen the "Promised Land."
Galilee is a region in northern Israel. Traditionally refers to the mountainous part and divided into Upper Galilee and Lower Galilee. In the modern common usage, Galilee refers to all of the Israeli area that is beyond Mount Carmel to the northeast, extending from Dan to the north, at the base of Mount Hermon, along Mount Lebanon to the ridges of Mount Carmel and Mount Gilboa north of Jenin to the south, and from the Jordan Rift Valley to the east across the plains of the Jezreel Valley and Acre to the shores of the Mediterranean Sea and the coastal plain in the west, including Beth Shean's valley, Sea of Galilee's valley, and Hula Valley, although practically it usually does not include Haifa's immediate northern suburbs. By this definition it overlaps with much of the administrative Northern District of the country. Western Galilee is a common term referring to the western part of the Upper Galilee and its shore, and usually also the northwestern part of the Lower Galilee, mostly overlapping with Acre sub district
