For three years, Jewish zealots held Roman armies at bay from the fortress of Masada. Visit this moving site before experiencing the Dead Sea, the lowest point on earth.

The drive between Ashdod and Masada is approximately 2 hours each way. Walking shoes are recommended together with sun protection. Please remember to bring your swimsuit and a towel.

You'll visit the following sites:

MASADA - Herod the Great built a fortress and a palace on this tabletop mountain that towers 1450 feet (442m) above the Dead Sea. It was here that the Jewish Zealots made their last stand against Roman armies during the Jewish revolt. For three years the Zealots held out. With the Romans on the verge of breeching the walls, the zealots chose mass suicide. Ascend the mountain by cable car. Explore the site and see the Ramps, the grain and bath houses, Herod's palace and the synagogue, one of only four known to date from the period of the Second Temple.

DEAD SEA - At 1276 feet below sea level, the Dead Sea is the lowest point on earth. The mineral laden water is undrinkable and supports no life. Visit a leading resort on its shore and experience a classic moment for travelers to the Holy Land: a swim in the Dead Sea. The salt waters keep even non-swimmers afloat. Changing facilities and showers are available at the resort.

A buffet lunch with wine is served in the resort on the Dead Sea.

From Ashdod drive via the Judean hills to Jerusalem for a panoramic view of the Old City. Along the Dead Sea coast pass Qumran, where the Dead Sea Scrolls were discovered in 1947. On the return route travel via Arad, the largest town in the Negev Desert.

Note: Guests must be able to walk 1 1/2 miles over cobblestone, uneven terrain with steps. This tour is not recommended for guests with limited mobility, wheelchair bound passengers or guests with walkers. The sequence of your itinerary may be altered. The drive between Ashdod and Masada is approximately 2 hours each way. Walking shoes are recommended together with sun protection. Please remember to bring your swimsuit and a towel. Changing facilities and showers are available at the resort.

Please note this tour is not offered for the Vision of the Seas visit on October 24.
