History & Archaeology
There is no end to the historical and archaeological sites that one can explore in Israel.
Touching, feeling and walking into 3,000 years of history and Jewish heritage is an unbeatable experience, especially for those who love exploring the past.
At the City of David, the core of urban Jerusalem dating back 3,000 years, you can walk down the secret access shaft many believe was used by King David and his troops when they conquered the city, or find your way with a flashlight through a water tunnel dug out during the same period, continuing on through a Roman drainage channel and emerging at the foot of the Western Wall, the surviving remnant of the Temple Mount. It’s a combination of pure excitement and fun — and an experience that’s simply unforgettable.
Or visit Zippori (Sepphoris), called the Jewel of the Galilee by Josephus Flavius, the former Jew turned Roman historian. Discover how people lived, crawl through the 2,000-year-old aqueduct to the Acropolis and the junction of the ancient city’s two main streets, where the bases of ancient columns provide yet another reminder of how things looked two millennia ago.
