About this book

Israel is a country whose turbulent history stands alongside its rich cultural heritage and outstanding natural beauty. The spiritual centre of three world religions Judaism, Christianity and Islam - this new Bradt guide provides in-depth detail on key religious sites of interest to pilgrims. Go scuba-diving in the seaside town of Eilat, visit the green valleys and mountains of the Golan Heights or float in the country's famous salt lake, the Dead Sea. Plenty of practical details on culture, language, local tours, flights and visas make the Bradt guide a comprehensive and up-to-date choice for visitors to this popular destination in the Middle East.

'Bradt's new guidebook doesn't claim to offer an alternative 'roadmap' to Middle-East harmony but it does inform and will certainly enrich any visit to the world's most complex religio-political destination.' Travel Media 'Although the first [edition] was produced only two years ago, this updated version includes fresh information on eating places and hotels and in typical Bradt style features a wealth of useful material on everything from single words and phrases, to a potted history and touring essentials.' ... Samantha Wilson has included most of what not only the first time traveller but the seasoned visitor to Israel might need to know about the country. Jewish Telegraph
