Why visit Israel? Israel is very much the historic and religious centre of the Middle East. With over 3,000 years of history, and countless historical and sacred sites it is one of the most fascinating countries. It also borders the salt-filled Dead Sea, 427m below sea-level.
What is the climate like in Israel? The weather in Israel is usually very pleasant, during summer (June to September) temperatures range between 27-32°C. Jerusalem is generally a little drier and cooler than Tel Aviv. Days during spring and autumn are usually between 15-25°C and during winter (December to March) maximum temperatures at 15°C, whilst the nights, particularly in Jerusalem can be very cold.
What can I combine Israel with? Jordan is one of the best countries to combine with Israel, particularly as many of Jordan’s best sites are nearby the Israeli border. Neighbouring Egypt is only a short flight away, and is another country filled with ancient treasures, temples and history.
