Ein Shaviv St 70, Mitzpe Ramon, Israel
The rock of Masada which is towering almost 1000ft above the Dead Sea shore is one of the most impressive archeological sites in Israel. It is known for its flat top and the remarkable role it played in the Jewish history. (The siege of Masada by...

Matalon St 44, Tel Aviv-Yafo, Israel
Israel is located along the Mediterranean Sea and have few ports and fishing areas; Haifa, Acre, Ashdod, Tiberias, Eilat and Jaffa. Therefore, there are a lot of great fish and seafood restaurants especially in these cities but also across the...
Save Place
Jaffa, Tel Aviv-Yafo, Israel
Jaffa is an old city port adjoins to Tel Aviv and it is a mixed city of Arabs and Jews. The legend says that Japheth, the son of Noah, found a pleasant hill overlooking a bay and settled down, naming the place 'Yafo'. This is one of the oldest...

Tel Aviv-Yafo, Israel
There is no better way to end the day and decompress than watching the sun goes down from the beach. Even better when you watch the sunset with your love ones. The good thing in Israel is that it has 125 miles of golden sun soaked beaches, which...
Save Place
Levinsky, Tel Aviv-Yafo, Israel
One of the best ways to experience a country is through its food. There are quite a lot of open markets in Israel (shuk) and local companies started running some culinary tours in Tel Aviv. For tourists who don't know where to go and which markets...

Safed, Israel
The city of Safed is located on a hilltop in the Galilee, overlooking mount Meron, a mountain where the mystical texts of the Kabbalah were written. When you walk along the narrow cobblestone streets of the old part of the city, visit the various...

Rosh Pinna, Israel
Some might say that the Galilee area in Israel is like the Tuscany in Italy. Green lushes mountains, the Sea of the Galilee (Kinneret) the Hula Valley and little towns and kibbutzs villages. If you want to escape the city life and enjoy a romantic...

Jerusalem
Jerusalem is considered one of the most spiritual cities in the world and sacred to all religions for its significant monuments, mostly centered in the Old City. Tour the four quarters in the Old City. Walk through Via Dolorosa till you reach the...

Mahane Yehuda, Jerusalem, Israel
I went to Israel for two weeks and I came back at least 10 pounds heavier. My downfall began with a trip to Mahane Yehuda (the “Shuk”), Jerusalem’s oldest and largest market where I discovered Israeli cheese, halva, pastries, cookies, olives,...

Olei Zion St, Tel Aviv-Yafo, Israel
The flea market in Jaffa is one of the most trendiest and hype locations in Jaffa, Tel Aviv. Filled with various antique stores, the market is a buzzing place especially during the weekdays (closed on Saturday) and crowded with some interesting...

Tel Aviv-Yafo, Israel
If you are visiting Israel, I highly recommend munching on the delicious local food but also boost your meal with a glass of Ouzo (despite its Greek origin). Ouzo imported from Greek is available to purchase in Delicatessen delis and goes well...
Save Place
Tel Aviv-Yafo, Israel
Nothing like a good, simple, fresh Mediterranean food; Green Salads, grilled eggplants and artichokes, ouzo and red grapefruit for dessert.

Yavne St 30, Tel Aviv-Yafo, Israel
“I tend to lose my head and empty my wallet at Hibino, a gallery and shop that stocks design items from Japan, such as porcelain pieces by Kihara. It has started to carry clothes by young Japanese designers, too. Prices are high, but the quality...

Rosh Pinna, Israel
Located between Akko and the Sea of Galilee, this working kibbutz and spa hotel is the perfect recharge. I know that sounds cliché, but bear with me. First off, the backstory goes like this: a German-born homeopathic doctor stumbled upon the...
Save Place
Acre, Israel
This 12th-century mini-city was home to the Hospitaller knights in the Crusader period, one of the major eras in Old Acre’s history. It’s been nicely restored; I really enjoyed strolling through what remains of the two-acre compound, with its...

Rothschild Blvd 71, Tel Aviv-Yafo, Israel
The couple is eccentric, easy going, and full of life, just like their food. The fresh ingredients compile together to form an unforgettable three course meal, complete with a bottle of wine for each pair. Aside from the fish caught fresh from the...
Save Place
Capernaum, Israel
There’s a modern-looking church here, with a glass floor installed that lets you peer down into the ruins of St. Peter’s house. More compelling, I thought, were the remains of a synagogue from the early Byzantine era, with its elegant columns and...
Save Place
HaCarmel St 11, Tel Aviv-Yafo, Israel
If you are on the hunt for a great local market, definitely head to Carmel's open-air market. Sample some of Israel's local delicacies and splurge on candies and other desserts. From my experience the vendors are friendly and don't pressure you to...

Jerusalem, Israel
Shopping in the food markets of other countries is always interesting to us. Across the street from the Mahane Yehuda Market, aka the Shuk, is a small shop called The World Spices. We found several spices that were new to us, including a Moroccan...

Jaffa Port, Tel Aviv-Yafo
For a nice calm break from the modern pace of Tel Aviv, spend some time in Old Jaffa. You can walk along the Mediterranean beach and get here. Some nice little artisan shops can be found in the nooks and crannies.

Beit Eshel St 3, Tel Aviv-Yafo, Israel
While wandering around Jaffa, one of the oldest settlements in the world and now connected to Tel Aviv, I stumbled upon a restaurant called Dr. Shakshuka. The specialty is--wait for it--shakshuka, a concoction of poached eggs, tomato, onion,...

I stumbled upon Makor HaBracha just around the time my stomach was signaling to my brain that it was ready for lunch. This small eatery is located in HaCarmel Market, near the entrance to the market’s meat section. I took a menu – one side is...

Derech Ruppin, Jerusalem, Israel
It hardly rains in Israel so there is no use saving this museum for a rainy day. The vast collection of art, archeology, sculptures and antiques can easily keep one entertained for hours. I definitely recommend beginning with the Model of...

Dead Sea Region, Israel
For as long as I can remember, any friend who had come back from a trip to Israel had at least a dozen photos of them floating along the Dead Sea. This past May I spent about two weeks touring through Israel and one of the major highlights for me...
