Tel Aviv

€ 500.00

The tv news usually doesn't show us the loads of cultures and arts that some country and towns like Tel Aviv has so have a look and take your decision. This is a good choice! At the cruise ship pier, board your vehicle for the approximately 25 mile drive to Tel Aviv. Here you will find Israel's second largest city, and the most cosmopolitan.

Begin in Caesarea Palaestina (also called Caesarea Maritima) built by Herod the Great on the coast of Israel, about halfway between Tel Aviv and Haifa. During the 1950s and 1960s archaeological excavations uncovered many remains, including a Roman theatre, a temple dedicated to Caesar, a hippodrome, and more. Next you are on to Beit Hatefutsot, or the Diaspora Museum, at the Tel Aviv University. Located at the largest university in Israel, this museum was established in 1978 and traces the history of Jewish communities of the diaspora throughout the ages. Continue on to the home of David Ben-Gurion, the first Prime Minister of Israel. Born in Poland, Ben-Gurion played a crucial role in the founding of the state of Israel, carrying on through the turmoil of the 1948 Arab-Israeli War, leading the country in its initial years of existence. In his will he bequeathed his home to the state of Israel, requesting that it be opened to the public. All items belonging to him and his wife are still there, as well as souvenirs and exhibits that were added later on. After that you will have a visit to Dizengoff Street, where you will get a chance to do some shopping in the local environment. Search for great souvenirs to bring home with you. Afterwards, you will be transferred back to your cruise ship.
