Dead Sea and Jerusalem Itinerary
Take a day or two and head for the Dead Sea via Jerusalem. Visit the City of David, which symbolizes the beginning of Jerusalem’s sanctity, and then head down to Qumran National Park where the Dead Sea Scrolls were written, to Enot Tsukim, the lowest nature reserve in the world, and from there to the mountain that became a symbol – Masada National Park, towering above the Dead Sea.
Sea of Galilee Itinerary
Cities and shrines have risen back through time around the Sea of Galilee, Israel’s largest lake. A visit to this area is a dazzling historical experience, from the Greco-Roman city of Scythopolis at Bet Shean National Park to the ancient church at Kursi National Park, the historic synagogue at Korazim National Park, the caves of the warriors on Mount Arbel with its view of the Sea of Galilee, and the pier at Capernaum National Park – the gateway to the springs, churches and sacred sites on the lakeshore.
