  • Recommend for independent hits on their own or rented car. There is a good and free parking. 2.5 hours drive from Eilat or Tel Aviv. Interesting place tour takes 2.5 hours -3.5. Have a wonderful and interesting audioguide in Russian for 20 shekels. If there are postage stamps (buy) you can send a postcard directly from there with the stamp of the place. Large shop Ahava. Recommend to spend money on lift there and back. Raising the walk, especially in the heat, very heavy.

  • The museum at Masada held many informative displays. Wildlife outside added excitement. Wonderful to understand a portion of the history of the place. 
  • If you love museums - you will love this one. Quite honestly, I am more a walker. But don't miss it.
