Journey on from Tel Aviv, along the coastal road to Caesarea to explore the ancient Roman and Crusader ruins, including the huge amphitheatre. Travel via Haifa to Acre, fought over for centuries and captured in turn by Saracens and Crusaders, including Richard the Lionheart. See the fortress, the old harbour area and Crusader crypt, before continuing to Nazareth. Visit one of Christianity's most sacred places, the Church of Annunciation, on the site where the angel Gabriel is said to have appeared to Mary. Head on to your welcoming hotel in Tiberias, on the Sea of Galilee. The day concludes with a brief introduction to life on a Kibbutz.(BB / D)

Visit the ancient wooden boat which dates back to the times of Jesus and enjoy a cruise on the Sea of Galilee. Visit Capernaum, where Jesus is said to have entered the Synagogue and taught, before heading to the Mount of Beatitudes, where he preached the Sermon on the Mount. Next, journey through ever-changing landscapes along the Jordan Valley, past ancient Jericho, to take a dip in the buoyant salt waters of the Dead Sea.(BB / D)

Day 6 Masada and the Holy City of Jerusalem

Take a cable car ride up to the fortress of Masada, where Jewish Zealots held out for three years against Herod's armies. Pass the caves where the Dead Sea Scrolls were found at Qumran, before driving through the Judean Hills to Jerusalem. Continue up to Mount Scopus for breathtaking views of Jerusalem. Afterwards, visit King David's Tomb on Mount Zion, and the Room of the Last Supper, prior to entering the Old City. Here, walk along winding cobbled alleyways to the magnificent Wailing Wall – the most sacred monument in Judaism. Then check into your hotel for three fabulous nights.(BB)

Day 7 Exploring Jerusalem

Visit Yad Vashem - the memorial that is a tribute to those who perished in the Holocaust, and the Shrine of the Book - a wing of the Israel Museum, housing the Dead Sea Scrolls.(BB)

Day 8 Optional Bethlehem Experience and Exploring Jerusalem

(Relaxed Start) In the morning, perhaps take the opportunity to meet your Local Expert at the West Bank border and continue to the Holy city of Bethlehem? Visit the Church of the Nativity, one of the oldest continuously operating churches in the world. The structure is built over the cave that tradition marks as the birthplace of Christ, and it is considered sacred by followers of both Christianity and Islam. Return to Jerusalem, where you’ll also visit the Garden of Gethsemene and walk through the Old City to see the Temple Mount - one of Islam’s holiest sites. Continue along the Via Dolorosa past the Stations of the Cross, Ecce Homo Arch, and Pool of Bethesda, to the Church of the Holy Sepulchre.
