I live in the Tel Aviv area, and I can confirm that most of Israel is easily accessible from there. I have no idea what tourist infrastructure exists in the Palestinian Authority area, if any, and how to get there from Tel Aviv. Tel Aviv is something like Miami, in that attractions include the beach and a lively nightlife, while Jerusalem has a lot more ...

As an American who just recently traveled to Israel for the first time with a former Israeli, my impression is that you should stay in Jerusalem. We took a bus that only took about 45 minutes from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. They are very close together. And Jerusalem was much more interesting to me from a tourist perspective (i.e. the rich history and ...

There are probably no (ordinary) ferries going to Israel. You can find more information on the Seat 61 Israel page. I quote from the overland to Israel section: However, as at January 2010, both Poseidon Lines and Salamis Lines' Piraeus-Cyprus-Israel ferry services remain suspended because of the political situation in Israel, and they show no sign of ...

There's a number of reasons why a flight might fly a different route, with Weather on-route being the most common. However for this specific flight, there's probably a far less common reason - Solar Flares! You may recall that around the 2nd of April this year there were a number of major solar flares, which have the potential to impact a number of aspects ...

No. Stay in Tel-Aviv to visit Tel-Aviv and then move on. Tel-Aviv is a cool city, the coolest in Israel, but exploring the whole country from there is cumbersome. One of the highlights in Israel is Jersualem. Visiting Jerusalem takes some days. This means that you have to travel several times back and forth along the same road. The roads are congested. You ...

Aegean Airlines currently has direct, return flights on these specific dates for €241.87 (including taxes and luggage). Olympic Air on the contrary is more expensive and flies through Athens. I believe the Aegean price is difficult to beat.

Generally speaking the permits are required for professional photographers and film crews that could block parts of public walkways streets and walkways for an extended period of time. When it comes to personal photography there is no permit required, so if you do not intend to set up a large tripod and have it sit on the sidewalk for 1-2 hours while you ...

Wikipedia has a thought on why this might occur: Over longer distances and/or at higher latitudes the great circle route is significantly shorter than the rhumb line between the same two points. However the inconvenience of having to continuously change bearings while travelling a great circle route makes rhumb line navigation appealing in ...

Tel Aviv and Jerusalem are both large cities near the center of the country, which is to say that they are both good choices for you. Tel Aviv has the advantage of being on the coast, and therefore closer to Haifa, the other large city in the north (away from the Gaza Strip), meaning that it is the better base for visiting Israel alone. But Jerusalem is ...

I think I would pick Jerusalem, but both would be decent choices, they are a short bus trip apart anyway.

Yes, it have links to all major cities and regions by rail or by road

You would probably have to talk to one travel agent, or another, and get a price. I saw tickets for about $365 without looking too hard. Is it cheapest? I don't know. You can try a boat, they used to have pretty cheap tickets on ships between Greece and Israel a decade or two ago, but I'm afraid its not as popular as it used to be, so you might not find ...

What you are asking is hard. The insurance prices go considerably up for drivers younger than 24, and for new drivers. From looking online it seems that the big rental companies will not rent out cars to people younger than 24 or who have had a driver's license for less than 2 years. I was able to find at least 3 smaller companies who will rent cars to new ...

It appears a lot has changed since travelling the ferry route from Athens to Israel 21 years ago and what an amazing experience that was... 3 days . Two nights if my memory serves me well... back packers and others just camping out on board ... I was lucky I guess to experience that as it appears it is now not possible :(
