Israel holidays are the perfect opportunity to explore an incredible nation characterised by both a rich history and modern urbanisation. Known for sites considered holy by three of the world’s most widespread religions, Israel has been hoppin’ since before recorded history. Sandwiched between two other fairly important early civilisations (Mesopotamia and Egypt), Israel is a diverse nation where people speak Hebrew, Arabic, Russian, French, Spanish, Yiddish and Amharic. But don’t worry. You can learn them all on tape during your flight and ride to your Israel accommodation. That, or just use English, which most Israelis know anyway.
Israel hotels offer the chance to walk in the footsteps of Jesus’ parents—as well as leisure-seekers and religious pilgrims from all over the world. Along the way, learn about the origin of cool words like kvetch, schmuck, and schlep.
See the holy city of Jerusalem and the metropolitan Tel Aviv, but don’t forget the painted canyons of Makhtesh Ramon, the rugged white rocks of Rosh Haniqra and the timeless Dead Sea. And you can’t get the full Israeli experience without biting into a cheese boreka, baba ganoush spread over a pita or the sweet layers of a baklava pastry. Once you’ve eaten your fill, kick back at your accommodation in Israel to recharge for another exciting day.
Ben Gurion International Airport (TLV) in Tel Aviv is the most popular place to touch down in Israel, but there’s also Haifa (HAF) in the North and Ovda (VDA) and Eilat (ETH) to the South. Hop a domestic flight, catch a bus, or pick up the wheels you rented right here on Wotif to get around the country from there.
