So, you are planning a holiday in Israel. What are the 'must see' attractions? We asked members of our Facebook group: If you had only 5 days to take a holiday and show someone around Israel, where would you take them? The results were unanimous. You need more time. You cannot possibly tour Israel in 5 days!
Surprisingly, many of the traditionally popular sites were not nominated but some lesser known sites, were. Here are the results:
- Akko - the Old City

Take a Hike
Hiking in Israel
Hiking is a big part of the Israeli culture. The ultimate hike is the Israel National Trail which takes you from Kiryat Shmona in the north all the way down to Eilat in the south.
There are many national parks across the country. Some of the national parks have camping and lodging facilities. The Matmon is the membership card of the Israel Nature & Parks Authority. The card gives you discounts on camping and free entrance to the parks for an entire year. A similar card is available for tourists visiting Israel.
Mid-summer daytime temperatures in Israel; June, July and August, often reach the high 30's (centigrade). The best months for traveling are April and May as well as September and October.
No matter where you visit, take only photographs and leave only footprints.
