Day 5: Galilee to the Dead Sea
After breakfast, we will drive south to Belt Sheaan, the largest archeological site in Israel. We will explore the ancient Roman City with the Amphitheatre and reconstructed streets. We then continue south through the Jordan Valley to Jericho as conditions allow.
We will visit the excavations of ancient Jericho and view the Mount of Temptations. We will then drive through the Qumran Caves area, where the Dead Sea Scrolls were found and see the excavations.
We then move on to the lowest place on earth – the Dead Sea which is the saltiest body of water in the world. Our hotel is by the Dead Sea shores where we will swim, or to be more exact, float on this amazing sea – a non-swimmers paradise.
We’ll have dinner and an overnight stay at our hotel by the Dead Sea.
