Ben Gurion International Airport (TLV)

From its mega beaches, markets and fancy eateries to shopping, skyscrapers and lively nightlife, Tel Aviv has something for everyone. With a prime location on the Mediterranean coast, the cosmopolitan city offers an exciting art and music scene, exotic cuisines and vibrant cultures. It’s also the gateway to the Holy City of Jerusalem.

One of the most revered inspirational cities on the planet, and approximately 37 miles northwest of Tel Aviv, Jerusalem is a city of contrasts — boasting extraordinary historic sites, world-class museums and a mild climate. Sitting alongside bazaars and coffee shops, the old and new, modern and traditional, devout and secular flourish together.

Take An Adventure Through Time

With more than 3,000 years of history, Israel is a truly alluring destination for history buffs and modern-day pilgrims. Float in the Dead Sea, shop in bustling open-air markets, trek across the desert, walk the cobblestone streets of Jerusalem’s Old City, or visit the picturesque and ancient city of Jaffa.

Easy going and incredibly diverse, Tel Aviv is known as The White City because of its Bauhaus-style architecture. It has a trendy cafe culture and a bustling Carmel Market that’s famous for its spices. By day, languish on the golden beaches beside the glistening Mediterranean, and after the sun sets, head out to rub elbows with the locals in the many bars and nightclubs around the city.

Your senses may just start swimming at the sights and smells of Tel Aviv's food extravaganza. Falafel. Hummus. Kabobs. Stuffed breads. Fresh fish. Pastries. Tel Aviv is Israel's culinary epicenter — offering Chinese, Italian, Arabian, Persian and Thai cuisine, in addition to gourmet hotspots and tasty street stalls. Sample a coffee ice-cream soda (one of the most popular Israeli drinks), and make sure to explore the Hatikvah area and walk down Etzel Street — a foodie's dream come true.

Jerusalem's cuisine tends to be somewhat different than what you would find in Tel Aviv. Most restaurants are kosher, and many of the fast food, Middle Eastern eateries are inexpensive, filling and utterly delicious.
