Take a tour to Israel and visit Masada

Written by

One of the amazing highlights during a Jewish heritage trip in Israel will be Masada, the famous fortress built by King Herod the Great between 37 and 31 BCE, and later used and fortified by Jews who held out against the Roman Empire in 73 CE.

Often on a holy land tour to Israel, one of the first picturesque views of an ancient city will be that of Jaffa situated on a natural harbor atop a hill on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea, and only minutes from Tel Aviv. This ancient port city is the oldest municipality in Israel, and famous for being mentioned in the bible stories of Solomon, Jonah, and Peter. 

Caesarea will be one of your visits during your Jewish heritage tour itinerary. It is one of Israel’s great antiquities, and a national park treasure of the Israeli people. Walking here is like traveling back in time.
