About this book

Israel is a land of dramatic contrasts where three world religions - Judaism, Christianity and Islam - meet in stunning landscapes, where ancient architecture stands next to modern, where the fertile north spills into the arid southern desert and where the secular live alongside the devout. This second edition gives practical tips on the top hotels and restaurants plus all the information to get the best from Israel's range of attractions. From archaeological remains of Crusader castles and Roman cities, scuba diving off Eilat's coast, marvelling at the mountainous Golan Heights to floating in the Dead Sea, Bradt's Israel is the perfect travelling companion, enlightening and enhancing every trip.

About the author

Samantha Wilson studied archaeology at university then set off to explore the world. While travelling she met her Israeli partner and moved to Tel Aviv in 2004.

Press reviews

"Among the many good guidebooks, the Bradt Guide to Israel by Samantha Wilson is well written and useful."
Simon Calder - The Independent

'Bradt's new guidebook doesn't claim to offer an alternative 'roadmap' to Middle-East harmony but it does inform and will certainly enrich any visit to the world's most complex religio-political destination.'
Travel Media

'Although the first [edition] was produced only two years ago, this updated version includes fresh information on eating places and hotels and in typical Bradt style features a wealth of useful material on everything from single words and phrases, to a potted history and touring essentials.' .... Samantha Wilson has included most of what not only the first time traveller but the seasoned visitor to Israel might need to know about the country.
Jewish Telegraph
