What to expect in Israel

Israel’s Mediterranean climate with long, hot summers and cool, rainy winters makes it a great destination all year round to soak up its outdoor culture. This land of immigrants will welcome you warmly with its cafe culture, beach living and outdoor markets brimming with Middle Eastern delicacies. Its excellent bus service puts its cities within your reach, so that you can experience beach towns like Haifa, the fortress city of Akko (if you use your imagination, you’ll hear the clash of ancient swords between the Muslims and the Crusaders) and the Sea of Galilee.

With thousands of years of history, and a language, Hebrew, that is one of the oldest in the world, Israel will fill your senses with its juxtaposition of ancient and modern, high-tech and high touch travel experiences.
