As many countries and cities as we may have seen, Israel – and especially Jerusalem – is probably the most remarkable. Stunning landscapes with huge variety from jungle-like greens on Golan to the barren deserts of the Negev, huge historical interest and many, many, many important cultural sites, a present-day cultural crossroads, with major fascinating and tragic political and religious issues, an intoxicating feel of deep religion in the air and a lovely blend of several cuisines.
Basically, you are walking through 3000 years of history, which was the basis of modern Western Europe. All very safe, all very well developed. Highly recommended!
