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.
