GO: CRUISE TO THE HOLY LANDS

Nancy Cassano

Chief Bucket List Concierge™

Is visiting the Holy Lands a Bucket List dream for you? We suggest that your first visit be a cruise. Thirteen cruise lines call on Israel ports, typically in the Fall.

Holy Land cruises usually package two or three days in Israel along with visits to eastern Mediterranean countries including Greece, Turkey, Cypress and more, or as part of a transit between Athens and Dubai. Several itineraries also include stops near Alexandria, Egypt to offer you a rare opportunity to visit the Great Pyramids along with your Holy Land visit. Others head to Turkey and the Greek Isles so you can visit paths of St Paul and St John.

In three days - two at Ashdod and one at Haifa - it is possible to visit Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, Bethlehem, and the towns of the Upper Galilee, including Nazareth, Capernaum, the Mount of the Beatitudes and the Jordan River.

Ashdod.

The Port of Ashdod in southern Israel is a perfect jumping off point to visit Tel Aviv, Jaffa, Jerusalem and Bethlehem. Most cruise ships will spend an overnight there, giving you two-days to explore.

Haifa

The Port of Haifa in the north places you within an easy drive of the northern Galilee region.

Please give us a call at 804-557-3006 to discuss all your options for visiting the Holy Lands.
