Israel In-Depth

Journey from Jaffa to Jerusalem and beyond on a rich journey through time

overview

Journey back in time as you uncover the many layers of Israel's past exploring 3,000 years of history which will give you new insights into the realities of Israel today.

This small country sits on strategically and culturally significant land, so it has been coveted by many civilizations since it was first inhabited. The archaeologic record shows evidence of prehistoric communities more than 600,000 years ago, but the land has been continuously occupied since at least 1209 BCE. Your comprehensive trip through the spectacular sites and stories of Israel will chronicle the dramas of the Canaanites, Israelites, Philistines, Assyrians, Babylonians, Persians, Greeks, Jewish Hasmoneans, Romans, Byzantines, Arabs, Ottomans, Palestinians, and Israelis. You will visit Jewish, Christian, Muslim, Pagan, and Bahai sites -- some with significance to multiple religious groups. The competing political and cultural aspirations of these communities over time foretold today's socio-political climate.

The delight in this trip is gaining greater understanding of a complex history through firsthand, multi-sensory experience and surprisingly personal stories.
