    Israel

    Tel Aviv is well worth exploring in its own right. The modern city is filled with museums, bars, cafes, galleries and restaurants, and offers lively night life and beautiful beaches.

    When to go: November-April for cooler weather in a dry country which allows its incredible history to shine through.

    From the ancient holy sites in Jerusalem, to the modern pulse of Tel Aviv, Israel is a fascinating country to explore. Walk the route Jesus took to his crucifixion along the Via Dolorosa, pass through the Jewish Quarter and Bazaar to the great Western Wall, explore the Valley of Elah, visit one of the beaches that surround the Sea of Galilee, or make your way to Bethlehem to see the famous Church of the Nativity.

    Camels seen between rocks in Petra, Jordan | Jordan Experience Tour

    Jordan may be steeped in history, but its capital of Amman is more cosmopolitan than you might think and offers a unique blend of ancient and modern attractions.

    When to go: April-November for the warmest climate; December-February for cooler temperatures.

    Jordan is brimming with amazing things to see beginning with the lost city of Petra, a remarkable ancient city carved into sheer rock and recognized as a world wonder. There are also many important biblical sites here, the vast red desert sands of Wadi Rum, well-preserved Greco-Roman remains at Jerash filled with temples, columns and forums; and many spas that take advantage of the well-known healing powers of the Dead Sea.

    Turkey - Cappadocia

    You won’t be bored in Istanbul for a second. Between the array of historic buildings, the museums and art galleries, and the many bars, clubs and restaurants to try out, there’s always something happening in this lively city.

    When to go: May-October for the warmest temperatures; November-December for an alternative festive experience.

    It’s tough not to be awed by Istanbul and its abundance of important historical buildings, but Turkey is about much more than this iconic city. There are white sand beaches, mountains, the white terrace pools of Pamukkale, beautifully unique landscape of Cappadocia, and Ancient Ephesus, the best-preserved classical city in the Eastern Mediterranean – and that’s just scratching the surface.
