Discover the kaleidoscope of Israel’s archaeological riches in springtime. Highlights include iconic ancient and religious sites, including five that are inscribed on UNESCO’s World Heritage list: the spectacular, tragic fortress of King Herod at Masada; the Biblical Tel (settlement mound) of Megiddo; a view of Haifa’s Bahá’í Gardens from Mt. Carmel; the Jewish necropolis of Beit Shearim; and Bethlehem, with its 4th-century Church of the Nativity. Also spend six nights based in Jerusalem, exploring in-depth its archaeological sites, outstanding museums, and major Christian, Jewish, and Islamic holy places; and explore the impressive ancient trading port of Caesarea Maritima as well as Qumran, overlooking the Dead Sea, where the Dead Sea Scrolls were hidden for nearly 2,000 years. Limited to a maximum of 15 participants.
