• Masada National Park

Arguably Israel’s most dramatic site, Masada’s mountain top ruins, set against the extraordinary backdrop of the Judean desert, are but a stage for the retelling of a heroic and ancient tale, now ingrained in national mythology.

Hear about the lives of the final Jewish resisters to Roman rule, relive their struggle against the mighty Roman army, and wonder at their heroic end.

Masada is a totally unique site, well deserving of its UNESCO world heritage status, and which includes the most complete Roman siege system remaining anywhere in the world.

Masada was extraordinary in all respects.
