Without a doubt, Jerusalem is the most fascinating place in Israel, so if you have a very limited amount of time, plan to spend much of it there. Distances are not great in Israel, and it is possible to get a quick taste of the desert, the Mediterranean coast, and even the Sea of Galilee on organized day trips from Jerusalem. But if you want to visit Eilat or get a real feel for the Galilee, then you’re going to have to get on the road and move around the country. To help you make the most of your time, this section offers two itineraries. The first is for the time-dependent traveler who can spend only a week or two in Israel. The second is specifically designed for families. Our website includes a summary of each region in the country for those who prefer to plan their own itineraries.
