For those wanting to see where the real Easter story took place, Israel is the place to be.
On Easter and the preceding Holy Week, Jerusalem fills with pilgrims from all over the world. For Orthodox and Catholic Christians, celebrations focus on the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, where six historic denominations have marked the crucifixion, burial and resurrection of Jesus since the fourth century. The perfect introduction to Israel, the Fantastic Israel tour starts in the vibrant city of Tel Aviv before heading to Jerusalem, Tiberias, Bethlehem and Nazareth, visiting many important religious sites and monuments, as well as travelling to the Dead Sea and the Sea of Galilee.
Encounters Travel is offering an eight-day small group adventure tour of Israel from £1,099 per person (saving £100). Available for departure on March 25th, the price includes airport transfers to/from Tel Aviv, accommodation in four-star hotels on a bed and breakfast basis and a professional tour guide throughout. Flights excluded.
