100 Places to Visit in Israel

Trying to make an inclusive list of the places I enjoy visiting in Israel. I already have a list of top cities to visit here, but this would be something different, just a list of tourist attractions, free and paid that I think are worth a visit here.

This is a NON-INCLUSIVE list. There are more places to see, obviously and this list reflects my own personal preferences. In fact, many of the “classical” attractions are missing from this list. I am sure you can find them elsewhere on the net.

I’ve included links to the official websites in English – where available. I plan on writing my own reviews too later on.

There are only 75 items for now – stay tuned for more until I reach my 100 places goal. If you’d like to suggest a place, just post a comment to this page.
