The Wonders of Ancient Israel and Petra (13 Days)

Long-ago prophets and modern-day pilgrims have flocked to Israel for millennia. And for an ancient spiritual epicenter, the country still feels surprisingly contemporary and fresh. Here, biblical sites and sacred artifacts mingle effortlessly with an eclectic and energetic local culture. Get a taste of cosmopolitan Tel Aviv’s laissez faire vibe and hip Haifa’s Bauhaus style, before descending into the holy lands that set the foundations for many faiths—including Jerusalem, one of the oldest cities in the world. Then venture one of the world's oldest preserved sites, that of Petra in Jordan. An Edventure doesn't get more ancient that this!
