Side Trip to Ashdod

Busy Ashdod is one of Israel's fastest-growing cities as well as its largest port. Perched on the Mediterranean, it processes more than 60% of the goods imported into the country. Home to many ancient peoples over the centuries, Ashdod today is a modern, planned city and a popular port of embarkation for cruise ships. It's perfectly situated for day trips to Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, and Bethlehem.
