Israel is a country located in the Middle East, on the southeastern shore of the Mediterranean Sea and the northern shore of the Red Sea. Known as a holy land for all Abrahamic religions, its most sacred sites can be found in the capital of Jerusalem. Other cities in Israel such as Tel Aviv and Haifa show a more modern side of the country, while the Negev desert offers a chance to explore desert flats, sand dunes, desert pavements, cliff faces and deep canyons that stretch for miles.
