The tourism in Israel is not only strong in the cities that have played an important role in religions. Although Jerusalem and other inland towns are very popular, the beach tourism on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea is also growing. The first interesting city is Ashdod, a modern Mediterranean port, 70 kilometers from the capital Jerusalem, a modern city where skyscrapers alternate with low white houses and a base for cruise ships. Haifa, however, is the lively “Capital of the North”, full of beautiful beaches, fascinating landscapes, nightlife and good music. While Tel Aviv, the White City, is also home to major museums such as the Beit Hatfutsot and the Israel Land Museum, where an open excavation site, with ruins belonging to the 12th century BC, is located.
