1 Day Jerusalem – from Eilat


With an ongoing history of more than 4000 years there isn’t a city in the world that evokes so much emotion, embracing so many people, as Jerusalem. The only place in the world that is sacred to Judaism, Christianity and Islam.

David established it as the capital of Israel and his son Solomon built the temple on Mount Moriah, where Jews and Christian believe that Abraham was going to sacrifice Isaac and where Muslims believe that Muhammad ascended to heaven to receive the prayer of Islam.

The lowest place on earth, the Dead Sea has attracted visitors from around the Mediterranean basin for thousands of years. It was a place of refuge for King David and one of the world’s first health resorts for Herod the Great.
