As small as Israel may be, it is also an incredibly versatile country with stylish cities, landscape views and beautiful people. Discover where you can find amazing opportunities for the perfect photo in Israel.

The Western Wall, Jerusalem

One of the holiest places for the Jewish religion, the Western wall in Jerusalem is where you will capture the ultimate mix of history, religion and tranquillity.

Jaffa’s old town

Not much explaining is needed here – Jaffa is one of the country’s most ancient ports, situated where Tel Aviv has now grown. Take incredible pictures of the old city along the coastline, the old port, the clock-tower and the nearby flea market.

Red Canyon, Eilat

In the mountainous desert just outside of Eilat, the most southern city in Israel, the Red Canyon is a short, yet beautiful canyon, with red sandstones rising up 30 metres on both sides.

The Dead Sea

One of Israel’s most famous landmarks, the Dead Sea is the lowest elevation place on earth and the deepest hypersaline lake in the world. The Dead Sea is not only fun to float in, it is also healthy for your body and is surrounded by breathtaking sceneries.

Masada National Park

Masada National Park is another UNESCO World Heritage Site, where some of history’s greatest stories took place. Reaching the top of the rock plateau overlooking the Dead Sea is definitely worth the effort, either by cable car or by hiking.

Bahai Gardens, Haifa

The Terraces of the Bahá’í Faith, a UNESCO World Heritage Site also known as the Hanging Gardens of Haifa, are not only the holiest sites of Bahai faith but also one of the country’s most beautiful spots.

Caesarea Harbour

The city and harbour of Caesarea were built under Herod the Great during c. 22–10 BC. With incredible coastal views and antique remains, they are all the more impressive today.

Rothschild Boulevard, Tel Aviv

Rothschild Boulevard, Tel Aviv‘s oldest and one of its most prominent streets, is always buzzing with music, restaurants, bars and cafes. Besides being full of gorgeous people, this boulevard is also a beautiful one.

Golan Heights

The north of Israel is full of green hills and hidden valleys and in general, beautiful landscapes. Hike one of the trails and discover a hidden lake, a stream or a waterfall.

Shuk Hacarmel (Hacarmel Market)

From Shuk Hacarmel, Levinsky Market and Hatikva Market in Tel Aviv to Akko Market and Machneyuda in Jerusalem, the food in Israel is not just delicious, but also looks amazing.
