Because Jerusalem is the heart of the Holy Land, no trip to Israel would be complete without visiting this destination. The city attracts tourists worldwide and offers freedom for everyone to practise their faith like no other place. Walking around Jerusalem will make you feel like getting in touch with several countries, as the area has plenty of international influences. One minute you walk into one of the most representative traditional Arab neighbourhoods, and the next one, you will be amazed by the orthodox Jewish enclave Mea Shearim. If you continue wandering the streets, you will soon discover the Holy Trinity Cathedral in the Russian Compound. Having a significant diversity of ethnic groups gives Jerusalem a unique benefit that is hard to match by any other region. 

The Wailing Wall, also known as the Western Wall, is what remains of the ancient Jewish temple and represents the most religious site globally. It is a destination that gathers millions of people yearly who come to recite prayers for themselves, their families and the loved ones who passed away. The wall is divided into two areas, for males and females, and the prayers can be either written down and put in the wall cracks or spoken. You also have to know that the famous wall is open 24/7 and free of charge.

One of the most recognisable buildings of Jerusalem is the Dome of the Rock, located on the Temple Mount and the third holiest site worldwide for Muslims after Mecca and Medina, so you might also want to check it. Don’t forget to visit the Old City Bazaar to buy authentic and traditional souvenirs for your family and friends. Israel can be seen any time of the year, but to make things easier, you can go on a tour with Israel Connection, as it offers the best alternative when you don’t want to be in charge of the trip preparations. Plus, it provides personalised services that will meet everyone’s needs.

Tel Aviv

Tel Aviv is a vibrant city that has it all, from picturesque beaches and unique landscapes to lively and dynamic nightlife. The beach is the most popular choice in this town, and if you thought you would only have one option, you were mistaken because Tel Aviv has no less than 16 beaches. Best of all, you will find the perfect one for all exigencies. If you are looking for a solution for families with calm water, Metzitzim Beach is the one for you; or go to Nordau Beach, also known as the” Religious Beach”, as it has divided areas for both men and women. Have you ever heard about a particular beach for dogs? Well, in Tel Aviv, you will also find this type, so if you plan a trip with your little buddy, this city might be the perfect option.

You don’t want to miss the Old City, as it bears the footprints of the over 3000 years old port town, Jaffa. Here, you will find plenty of markets that will offer diverse experiences. If you are looking for unique souvenirs, you can pick an engraving with words in Hebrew that you will find from several local artisans in the Nachlat Binyamin market. For food lovers, the best place is Carmel Market, the biggest one in the city, where you can pick fresh products or authentic dishes and spices. 

Although Tel Aviv is not as spiritual as Jerusalem, you will still glimpse into the Jewish culture. It is also a perfect destination for a family gateway, so book an Israel family tour to create happy memories you will remember for a lifetime.


Haifa is the third largest city in Israel and an industrial region on the coast of the Mediterranean Sea. You will not see the typical historical centre here but can discover the iconic UNESCO symbol, the Bahá’í Gardens. They are part of the Bahá’í World Centre, which is the name of the administrative and spiritual place of the Bahá’í Faith. The area contains stunning Greco-Roman buildings that amaze visitors. By going to the bottom of the gardens, you can admire Haifa’s German Colony, famous for its elegant streets with plenty of chic cafes and restaurants. Because Haifa was a small village when the German Temple Society arrived, this neighbourhood bears some of the roots of German culture. 

The museums in this city are not to be missed, as you have a great selection of them. The most notable is the Madatech Science and Technology Museum, which has impressive interactive displays of exciting topics, and the good news is that most of the exhibits are in English. If you come with kids, visiting the Haifa Educational Zoo will be a great idea, as it is home to over 100 species of wildlife animals. To learn about Israel’s Navy and its successes, you can visit the Clandestine Immigration and Navy Museum, or if you are into art, you can check the Haifa City Museum, created to celebrate the splendid cinematic past of the town.
