We continue through Arad to Masada, Israel’s prominent archaeological park. We ascend by cable car for a visit with insights into the rituals, politics, and culture of the people who inhabited the desert fortress. This was the last stronghold of Jewish Zealots fighting against the Romans. View excavations, Herod’s palaces, the synagogue, bathhouse, and cisterns. Witness the spectacular view of Roman camps and the Dead Sea. Move to the lowest point on Earth, the Dead Sea, to enjoy the mineral-rich black mud and go for a float in its salty waters.

Ein Karem is significant in Christian traditions as the location where John the Baptist was born. Visit Yad Vashem, the official memorial of the Jewish victims of the Holocaust.

Jerusalem is the holy city for each of the world’s three major religions, Christianity, Judaism, and Islam. Continue to the Garden of Gethsemane where Judas once betrayed Jesus. In the middle of a bustling neighborhood in downtown Jerusalem, we visit Mahane Yehuda, the largest open market in Israel, to revel in the flavors, aromas, and colors.
