Luxury Holidays in Israel

Israel packs in abundant riches, cherished religious sites, archaeological treasures, spectacular natural wonders and political complexity. Holy Land, sweeping desert and cool mountain vistas come together with cutting-edge technology and a cultural awakening that makes Israel a luxury travel destination that can enliven the senses and renew the spirit. Live it all with Lightfoot Travel who can create a tailor-made itinerary that will allow you to see the extraordinary diversity of this compact country in safety and sophistication.

In Jerusalem, wander the courtyards and cobblestone alleyways of the Old City which are full of churches, Islamic monuments and ancient Hebrew and Roman remains.

Experience local life in the Muslim Quarter where vendors sell everything from food to embroidered fabrics; visit the Western Wall at the foot of the Temple Mount; marvel at the artefacts at the Israel Museum; and navigate the open-air labyrinths of Machane Yehuda Market with a private guide.

An hour to the west of Jerusalem is glamorous, vivacious and forward-thinking Tel Aviv. Witness the unique Bauhaus architecture, explore the Tel Aviv Museum of Art, head to Jaffa port, or simply find your spot on the sand of this Mediterranean beach city. After a perfectly pink sunset, the place sparkles with stylish restaurants, clubs, and elegant roof top bars.

The north of the country is green and lush, with rivers and lakes intertwined with synagogues, churches, and Roman and Crusader remains. Go swimming, hiking, or cycling. Families will love the chocolate factories and organic goat cheese and fruit farms, while those without children can indulge in the boutique wineries and breweries.
