Israel

Known as being one of the most cosmopolitan countries in the Middle East, Israel is steeped in history. In Jerusalem, a city where multiple religions collide, you’ll find biblical places intertwined with Islamic and Jewish heritage.

Floating in the Dead Sea is a must do on your trip to Israel as well as ascending to the top of Masada, an ancient fortification before its violent destruction as Jewish patriots attempted to fight off the Roman army.

Promenades and beaches are alongside cafes and markets as well as being the hub of Israel’s gay culture.
