The holy land is full of historical and modern significance, and a trip to Israel can either fulfil your dreams about learning your religion's history or leave you perplexed as to what exactly happened to make the area so volatile. Whether you are travelling to Jerusalem, the country's financial centre of Tel Aviv, or the beaches of Eliat, you will have plenty of things to do to fill your days in Israel. Ebookers can help you plan your trip with flights, hotels, and information on area attractions.
Israel is a country for people of every religion. Christians can walk in the footsteps of Jesus Christ. People who follow the Jewish faith can visit memorials dedicated to souls lost during the Holocaust. Others can float in the Dead Sea or purchase products that people claim to have healing properties.
Best time to take a vacation to Israel
If you are planning to spend a significant amount of time outdoors while you are in Israel, a good time to visit is either late spring or early autumn to avoid extreme temperatures and rainfall. Summer heat is oppressive and can reach 40Â°C in Eliat, and Jerusalem temperatures dip to 6 degrees during January. If you will be indoors or don't mind the weather, you can take advantage of off-season pricing during these times. Israel is full of festivities during the Jewish holidays, but almost everything carries a higher price tag during the holidays.
