Summer is about good memories, sun and fun! Israel gives you more than that with his unique historical and cultural background. We deeply fall in love with this country which is easy to visit and rich with his diversified population. We met warm and welcoming people around the country which makes the journey incredible.

Within 10 days, we were able to visit a couple of city by using bus and train transportation: Haïfa, Acre, Nazareth, Jerusalem, Tiberias, Ein Gedi and much more. To prepare our journey, we bought a Lonely Planet guide book and did some research on Google. Also, we decided to book an apartment on Airbnb instead of a hotel room to embrace local daily lifestyle. Moreover, to be sure to have the best fares, we booked our flight tickets more than 3 months prior the departure on Air France website.

On top of the highlights of our stay, we have to let you know that the local food is delicious! It was very easy to find a place to eat but it was difficult to decide where to go. Most of the restaurants are generously rated and have good comments on Tripadvisor. Even by using HappyCow to filter vegan and vegetarian places, it remained a challenge for us to select just one! Among the restaurants we have tried in Tel Aviv, let’s mention Lima Nippo for fancy dinner and Benedict for brunch.
