  • We stopped at the museum before we hiked up Masada at sunrise. It gave us a better understanding of what happened before we went to the fortification 
  • To better understand the site visit is better begin here, where great historical events explain the context media accomplishments that have made the history of Masada. Even in Italian.

  • A great place to visit in November. The fortress completely tells the story of the existence of people in the desert in 16 km from the dead sea. An exciting flight on the funicular or risky climbing stairs in sushhestvovavshhij world on the rock.
