A visit to Israel is a one of a kind experience. No other country has so much diversity in such a small area. Israel is about the size of the state of New Jersey. And while it only takes six hours to drive from north to south (and only 20 minutes from east to west in some narrow areas), Israel is an impressive travel destination that has developed an international reputation as a trendy tourist destination.
Israel is a land of contrasts; from the city of Jerusalem, one of the oldest cities in the world– holy to Jews, Christians and Muslims, to the the commercial and cultural center of Israel– the Mediterranean city of Tel Aviv with its vibrant, modern, and liberal vibe. Israel is blessed with multicolored canyons, rolling hills, beaches that are sunny 365 days a year, archaeological sites which date back millennia and a myriad of museums.
