masada will never fall again
On an isolated clifftop in the heart of the desert, a lofty plateau overlooking the Dead Sea and the untamed landscape of the Judean Desert, there once stood a magnificent palace.
In the days of the Great Revolt, the last of the rebels against Rome entrenched themselves at Masada, and turned their desperate fight into a symbol of the struggle for freedom. Because of the enthralling historic events that took place on the mountain, and the archaeological finds that have been revealed there, UNESCO has declared Masada National Park a World Heritage Site.

Meir was extremely helpful and tailored the day exactly to our needs including making improptu changes. He picked us up right at the hotel door (when taxi drivers had been reluctant to enter the Arab quarter and blamed the one-way street). He has a relaxed and easy manner and is a pleasure to talk with. Many thanks for a great trip. Betty
