Dead Sea and Masada

Book This Shore Excursion
Starting from €312,33 EUR / Adult
Experience the stunning natural beauty and seemingly impossible history of faith and perseverance found along the Dead Sea. Via cable car, ascend the dry tabletop mount leading to the ancient fortress of Masada. See the now lifeless grain houses and baths. Stand before Herod’s palace and view a synagogue dating from the period of the Second Temple. Here Jewish zealots waged a holy fight for three long years before Roman soldiers finally breached the fortress walls. What they found, however, was a mass suicide of faithful who chose death over defeat. Descend Masada and drive to the Dead Sea, the lowest point on earth. Float in the impossibly buoyant waters. Exfoliate yourself with therapeutic sand from the bottom of the Dead Sea to leave your skin glowing and rejuvenated. Lunch will be served at a local resort before the scenic drive back to port.
  • Stand in awe at the fortress of Masada, where after three years of battle, Jewish zealots chose suicide over Roman domination.
  • Float buoyantly atop the densely salted waters of the Dead Sea — the lowest point on earth — treasured for its healing properties.
  • Enjoy a buffet lunch before a scenic drive through the Negev Desert back to Ashdod.
