Israel has thousands of years of contrast. It’s an ancient and holy land for three of the world’s major religions and a beacon of modernity in the Middle East.
Travellers come to Israel expecting to see an age-old world, the cradle of Judaism and Christianity. They walk through the Old City of Jerusalem, treading the footsteps of King Herod and Jesus of Nazareth, and find themselves steeped in spiritualty. But these wonders are not the end of Israel’s appeal. In Tel Aviv, art and culture spews from the streets, cafes call and beaches sparkle. It’s an astounding dichotomy; Israel’s two worlds, two millennia apart.

Touch the Wailing Wall in Jerusalem’s Old City
It was once part of a structure surrounding the Second Temple. Today it’s the holiest site in Jerusalem.
Pass through the ancient Roman Cardo
Jerusalem was not just an early centre for the three Abrahamic faiths, it was also an important Roman hub. The pillars and paving of the Cardo still remain.
