Jordan and Israel in 11 - 14 days

Jump to last reply

I was on a Red Sea cruise in January which stopped for 2 days an Aquaba, I visited Wadi Rum and Petra and fell in love with Jordan. Unfortunately the ship did not stop in Israel which would have made the holiday ideal for me.

I got an e mail from Easyjet and find out they operate from London to both Amman and Tel Aviv, so I am trying to create an itinerary flying into Amman and out of Tel Aviv and would welcome your help/

Jordan:
Fly London Gatwick to Amman and taxi to hotel in downtown Amman - Jordan Tower or Farah Hotel (I am on a budget) for 4 nights. These hotels offer tours where you join other people and reduce cost (I an travelling Solo).

1 Day: Jerash, Ajlun, Umm Qais.
1 day: Madada, Mount Nebo, Bethaney, Dead Sea.
1 Day Amman on my own.

Isreal:

Transfer from Jordan to Jerusalem.

Jerusalem - 2 nights.

I was brought up Anglican and went to Sunday School as a child so remember all the biblical stories, however, I am now Agnostic and I am not really interested in visiting Biblical sites, unless they are historical fact., I am very interested in visiting sites about the Holocaust and the Jewish Diaspora.

My no 1 spot for Jerusalem is Yad Vashem, followed by the Israel Museum and the Old City. The Mount of Olives would appear to be a must but I am unsure about it. Can I do this in 1 1/2 days and what have I left out that I should visit in Jerusalem?

Dead Sea and Masada - 1 night

Take bus to Dead Sea and visit Masada. Stay overnight in either a Kibbutz or Hostal in the area.

Tel Aviv:

Bus from Dead Sea to Tel Aviv and spend 4-5 nights here.

Visit Jaffa, Holocaust History Museum and have a least 3 days of R&R on a sunbed with a good book. Please don,t tell me that I am wasting time lying on a beach. I am well travelled and understand my body, this is necessary at the end of a hectic sight seeing tour. I can however extend my trip by a few days if necessary.

I would welcome any comments in particular the amount of time spent in Jordan and Jerusalem.

Thanks
