Israel: where ancient history meets modern innovation

One of the oldest and holiest places in the world, Israel is sacred to a number of religions, including Judaism, Christianity and Islam. Its tourist hub, Tel Aviv, boasts some of the most exciting seaside resorts in the Mediterranean and excellent museums like Beit Hatfutsot and the Tel Aviv Museum of Art. It’s also home of the Maccabi Tel Aviv, the Israeli football club with the most championships.
