This morning, we leave Jordan behind as we cross the border at Arava and enter Israel
We drive along the shores of the Dead Sea to Masada where you will learn about the heroic story of the Jewish fighters. Ascend by cable car and tour the mountain fortress built by King Herod, where the Zealots of the first century made their last stand against the Romans. We then visit the remains of the walls, palace, synagogue, water cisterns, mosaic floors, roman baths and other findings
After descending by cable car, we continue to the Dead Sea, the lowest point on the earth’s surface. Bring your swimsuit as, if weather permits, it’s possible to “float” on the salty, mineral rich, water.
We continue our journey to our final stop for the day, Jerusalem.
Included meals: Dinner
