Called the "White City" thanks to the color of its World Heritage-listed architectural landmarks, Tel Aviv serves as Israel's modern and cosmopolitan second city.
Get some historical perspective at Church of the Primacy of Peter and Sea of Galilee. Museum-lovers will get to explore Joseph Bau House Museum and The Ancient Galilee Boat. Venture out of the city with trips to The Church of the Twelve Apostles (in Capernaum), Al-Jazzar Mosque (in Acre) and Rosh Hanikra (in Rosh Hanikra). There's much more to do: stroll through Jerusalem Beach, enjoy the sand and surf at Frishman Beach, delve into the distant past at Tel Megiddo National Park, and walk around Ramat Gan National Park.
