A special point of interest here is the Cardo, meaning the "heart" of this ancient Byzantine city. View the unearthed main Roman thoroughfare and an ancient marketplace lined with columns. Proceed to the holiest place in Judaism today, the Western Wall, before descending through the many layers of Jerusalem’s past at the time of the Temple through the Western Wall Tunnels.

    You will then continue south to the legendary mountaintop plateau of Masada and ascend by cable car to the ancient synagogue of Masada to explore the ancient fortress. This was the last stronghold of the Jewish Zealots in their struggle against the Romans.

The combination of Ein Gedi’s abundance of water and the tropical climate provides for wonderful exotic plant and animal life.
