***Jerusalem. The Old City is where you’ll find most of the sights – and they’re stunning – including the prime Muslim and Jewish attractions at the Temple Mount, the Christian pilgrimage site of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre along with Golgotha/Calvary/Garden Tomb (two locations where Christ may have been crucified/entombed. Other than religion the souk/suq/market makes an interesting walk, as do the ramparts and medieval gates.
Nothing much happens in the Old City after dark so it’s a hike to the New City for restaurants and a surprisingly lively night life.

***Dead Sea. Have a mud bath, then a pleasant float in the mineral rich therapeutic seawaters. Nearby Ein Gedi is a lush oasis and Masada, the ancient Jewish mountain-top fort, has excellent views, a fascinating history and a cable car to get you to the top if the hike is too much effort.
**Tiberias/Galilee. A pretty town and lake with hot springs and Roman excavations. A pleasant day’s drive around the lake, including the sad River Jordan, the Monastery of the Sermon on the Mount and the Golan Heights is possible. Galillee ‘Jesus’ boat photo
