Publisher Comments:

Insight Guide Israel features illuminating text written by expert, local writers alongside over 250 inspiring full-color photographs that will bring Israel's people and places to life, at the turn of a page. A special 'Best of' feature highlights the top attractions not to be missed, including Jerusalem's Old City, Bethlehem, Nazareth, and diving in Eilat. The 'Editor's Choice' section has more recommendations, including the best beaches, markets, walks, and even some handy money-saving tips. From the key sites rich in history and religious significance, to the simple pleasures of a Dead Sea mud bath and a walk along a beautiful beach, all of Israel's attractions are included to ensure you experience the very best of this diverse destination, whatever your interests. An in-depth 'Places' section covers the entire country, from the pastoral landscapes of the bible to the modern buzz of Tel Aviv, and we devote four chapters to the West Bank. All the principal sites are cross-referenced by number to full-color maps to enable easy navigation at a glance. You will also find fascinating chapters on the country's long and intriguing history from the 'Dawn of Civilization' to the 'Coming of Age', alongside attractive, color-coded features exploring Israel's people, religion, cuisine, art and much more. A comprehensive 'Travel Tips' section provides essential information for planning your trip, covering transportation, accommodations for all budgets, eating out, nightlife, shopping, activities for children, and much more. The unique combination of insightful exploration alongside practical advice and beautiful photography means that this guide truly is a pleasure to read before, during and after your visit.

About the Author

British-born Simon Griver, whose authoritative journalism is much in demand in the UK and the US, has been resident in Israel since 1978. Even after so long in the country, he still values “the year-round sunshine, the exotic desert landscapes, and the informality of the people.”
