At the beginning of the great revolt against Rome in the year 68 CE, Masada was conquered by a group of Jewish zealots, and Masada became their last stronghold. In the year 72, the Romans besieged Masada and succeeded in reaching the steep fortress after constructing a huge earthen ramp on its western side. In the year 73, the 960 Jewish zealots living at the top of Masada chose to commit suicide rather than to fall into the hands of the Romans alive. Their deeds left behind a saga of courage, heroism, and martyrdom.

The Dead Sea
An Oasis of luxury in the middle of the colorful sandy Israeli desert
The Dead Sea, the world's largest natural spa, located in the lowest point on earth, has been attracting visitors for thousands of years. Today it has become an oasis of luxury in the middle of the colorful sandy Israeli desert, with its beautiful hotels, spas, and restaurants. The mud there, with its high mineral content, has long been known to be an ideal base for skin treatments and beauty products. In addition to making you gorgeous, scientists have proven that the atmosphere has health benefits that can leave your whole body feeling more youthful and vigorous. In other words, it's the closest thing to the mythological fountain of youth. The high density of the water makes swimming feel more like floating in its crisp clear waters, which gives one a better opportunity to absorb the natural beauty of the surrounding area.
A rich historical center as well, the area affords many glimpses into the developing culture of the area in Antiquity. In nearby Qumran, ancient scrolls of the Hebrew Bible and related texts which were written as far back as 408 BC were found in caves, along with Roman currency. Also nearby, is the famous fortress of Massada which was built by King Herod, where Jewish zealots held out against the Roman legion in 70 CE. No visit is complete without a hike up to the wonderfully preserved remains of Ancient architecture which provides an insight into the long-gone civilization and a wonderful vantage point from which to see the natural beauty of the area.
The setting of the sun welcomes the vibrant night life.
Tel Aviv, Israel's central urban hub that never sleeps, offers an array of various sites, smells, and experiences. In the past few years it has developed into the Gay capital of the Middle East according to OUT Magazine, with thousands of people coming for the OUTstanding Pride Week and all year. Upon entering the city one is greeted with concrete, glass, and lights of modern skyscrapers. The center of the city is spotted with the eclectic classically and modern-inspired architectural styles and the Bauhaus buildings which Tel Aviv is famous for. The serenity of the beaches, with year-round temperate weather, crystal water, and vast expanses of sand, infused exquisitely with the happening and trendy city scene which includes updated fashion and contemporary art galleries.
The neighboring Jaffa offers all the romance of an ancient port city, good for a late night stroll with a loved one or a daytime hunt for antiques. A culinary connoisseur will be happy to find a vast array of international cuisine to feast on. And, of course, the setting of the sun welcomes the vibrant night life. You can dance the night away in any one of the happening Gay clubs and bars to the music of some of the most talented DJs in the world. Once you leave the club, at the early morning hours, you can still experience the wonders of the city that never sleeps. Restaurants, boulevard cafes, and almost everything else will still be open when you are ready to tuck yourself into bed.
We've got an intimate knowledge of some of the city's best kept secrets. From which clubs play the best live music to which beaches are the most happening, we've been everywhere and seen it all. Even as the city continues to grow and develop to service the large local gay community and tourists, we make sure to stay updated and informed.
