Israel is a fascinating country - Though Israel is a small country, it is a place of amazing diversity: Israel’s ethnic and religious mosaic is rich and fascinating, and it has numerous cultural institutions and entertainment centers. Thanks to its rich history and sanctity for the three monotheistic religions, it has many ancient and holy sites. Israel is a developed country, located in a region that is geographically and climatically diversified. There is snow in the mountains in the north alongside dry arid desert in the south, and desolate areas alongside modern active cities. Most of the year the climate in Israel is pleasant, and you can tour the country the whole year round. However, it is recommended to visit during fall and spring (September – November, April – June), when the temperature is especially pleasant.
