Israel, a Middle Eastern country on the Mediterranean Sea, is regarded by Jews, Christians and Muslims as the biblical Holy Land. Its most sacred sites are in Jerusalem. Within its Old City, the Temple Mount complex includes the Dome of the Rock shrine, the historic Western Wall, Al-Aqsa Mosque and the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. Israel’s financial hub, Tel Aviv, is known for its Bauhaus architecture and beaches.
We visited Israel in February 2018 and stayed at the Hilton Tel Aviv. We traveled to Jerusalem and entered Old Jerusalem to see the Western Wall (Wailing Wall), the Dome of the Rock, King David’s Tomb, the Room of the Last Supper, and the site of the Crucifixion. We also visited the Dead Sea, a salt lake bordering Israel, the West Bank and Jordan with hypersaline water making floating very easy.
