If you’ve never visited Israel in the past, you may very well be surprised by how diverse it is. Today’s Israel is an intoxicating mix of the old and the
new, with its rich history blending well with its more modern cities. As a tourist, that gives you a lot of things to see and do – which is why people
often wonder: What are the best tourist destinations to visit in Israel?
Old City Jerusalem
For many people, Jerusalem is the main attraction of Israel – due to both its religious significance as well as its storied history. Some of its biggest
draws are the Western ‘Wailing’ Wall, the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, and the Dome of the Rock, but the truth is that there are many other sights to be
seen within its walls as well.
Although the Old City in Jerusalem may not be big in terms of the area that it covers, it can easily take you a day (or more) to fully explore its four
quarters. The unique feel of each of its quarters will truly give you a feel for the diversity of the people who call the city home, as well as its
Dive into the Water at the Red Sea, Eliat
Thanks to the sunny weather all year round, Israel has some really nice beaches for tourists to visit. Of these beaches, none is more popular than Eliat,
located in the south of Israel and on the Red Sea.
The crystal clear water in the Red Sea at Eliat coupled with its diverse range of marine life makes it a huge draw for divers. Whether you’d like to
snorkel or scuba is up to you, and equipment rentals are easy enough to find. If for whatever reason you’d rather not get your toes wet, then you could
visit the Underwater Observatory or stretch back on the beach and take in the sun.
Catch the Sunset at the Tel Aviv Beach
Being one of the largest cities in Israel, there is certainly no shortage of things to do in Tel Aviv. While you explore the city itself, be sure to head
over to one of its beaches as sunset approaches so that you can enjoy a breathtaking view of the sun as it dips over the horizon.
With over ten kilometers of beaches and numerous beachside cafes that overlook them, it shouldn’t be too hard to find a spot to take it all in.

One of the best family hotels in Israel to stay at while you trek across the country and explore
all that it has to offer is definitely Dan Hotels. No matter your destination, it is a safe bet that there’ll be one nearby as their
luxury chain is spread out across 16 different locations throughout the country.
