Palestine & Israel

Iconic religious sites and a storied history await curious travellers View All Palestine & Israel Holidays

Visitors to Palestine, the newest destination in our Middle East holiday collection, uncover a land of fascinating ancient history, filled with world-class relics and pockets in which time seems to have stood still. Western visitors to the region are few and far between, thanks to it’s time in the headlines and recent political and conflict issues in certain parts, but there are plenty of astounding cultural sites and cities which pose no threat at all to visitors. Informed travellers who make the journey here are rewarded with an exceptionally friendly welcome, and an authentic experience of life in Palestine & Israel, unmarred by crowds of foreign visitors.

Visits to iconic religious sites, from the Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem to the town of Bethlehem, are combined with trips to markets selling traditional wares, and sampling of local dishes such as zaatar-topped herb breads. For travellers looking to explore the region with a guide and a group, our Essential Palestine & Israel Group Tour offers a great introduction to the region, exploring the iconic ancient historic and religious sites and offering a light insight into daily life here.

A huge amount of religious, historical and archaeological sights with some of the most important sights in Islam, Judaism and Christianity as well as remains/forts/citadels left by Romans, Umayyads, Crusaders and Ottomans. Also plenty of interest for those interested in modern history due to the ongoing Arab-Israeli conflict. I truly believe that it is worthwhile taking the time to understand the lives of those living on both sides and see these historical cities have thriving, bustling modern communities of people very passionate about their nations.

Marianne's Tips
1
Overlooking the old city of Jerusalem and home to the glittering gold Dome of the Rock, Al Haram Al Sharif is one of the holiest sites in Judaism.
2
Sample manakish in Palestine. These puffy round flatbreads are topped with olive oil and za'atar - thyme, sumac and sesame.
3
In Bethlehem, spend a night in the charming, locally-owned Hosh al-Syrian guesthouse in the West Bank.
