Massada and Dead Sea
Start our day at Massada, built by Herod, defended by the Jewish Zealots and captured by the Romans after a three year siege.
You cannot leave the Dead Sea without taking a memorable dip in its salty,
buoyant and healing waters where you cannot sink, and purchasing the famous Ahava natural cosmetics.
Finally you will stop at Qumran, the suggested home of the Essenes, and see where many of the Dead Sea Scrolls were discovered.
If time permits visit Ein Gedi nature reserve with fresh water springs.
