Israel Active Interest Tour - Day 5

Day 5 Today a different kind of adventure awaits -- a spiritual one. Drive to Safed (Tzefat), city of mystic synagogues, art and music. If you love art and a mystical atmosphere you could spend a week here. Take the morning to stroll through the picturesque Artist Colony, visiting artists in their galleries and peeking into the old synagogues. At the HaMeiri House Museum you can hear many stories about the special people who used to live in Safed. If you really are adventurous (and male), you can try to bathe in the freezing waters of the Ari Mikveh near the old cemetery, which is believed to bring good luck. In the afternoon drive along the shore of the Sea of Galilee where, according to Christian tradition, Jesus walked on water. Continue to the archeological remains of Beit Shean, a city with over 6000 years of history. Climb the ancient tell for a fantastic view and to explore the biblical ruins. Below, visit the huge Roman theater, bathhouse and main street from Byzantine times. Drive through the Jordan Valley to the area of Ein Gedi on the shore of the Dead Sea. Overnight: in the Dead Sea area For additional itinerary suggestions, please see:
