Visiting Israel is considered pretty simple and convenient for the average tourist, because despite its location in the heart of the Middle East, Israel is a modern country with well developed infrastructure and transportation.


For this reasons, the number of tourists and pilgrims who come to the Holy Land is growing almost every year, now reaching over 5 million annually.
