Dead sea and Masada

Drive through the Judean desert to the Dead Sea, the lowest point on earth. Stop at Qumran, the site where the Dead Sea Scrolls were discovered.

Drive along the shores of the Dead Sea to Masada, ascend by cable car to tour the ancient fortress built by King Herod, where the Zealots held out against the might of the Roman legion, after the destruction of the second temple.

Visit the remains of the walls, palaces, synagogue, water cisterns, mosaic floors, the bathhouses, and other findings. Descend by cable car.

Continue to the Dead Sea: Enjoy the unique opportunity to swim and float in the Dead Sea and experience the medicinal properties of its saline waters.
