Israel is very popular with Christian visitors as it holds important cities and sites that have been mentioned in the holy books. However, it can still be a good destination for any traveler looking for fun and exciting things to see. Personally, I was longing to see what’s in store in cities such as Nazareth, Bethlehem, Jericho and Jerusalem. In particular, I was interested in seeing places such as the western wall, Nativity church in Bethlehem, Garden tomb, shepherds field and the Temple Mount of Jerusalem.

During my tour, I discovered that there are many other places in Israel that can appeal to general tourists. I visited Caesarea, an ancient city located in the Mediterranean. Much of its original buildings and architecture has been preserved to date. Also, there is the Sea of Galilee that boosts of a rich historical significance.
