Tomb of the Virgin (Jehoshaphatova Valley)
Christian Shrine Tomb of the Virgin
Empress Elena (mother of Emperor Constantine the First) built a church in 326, which was able to survive unchanged until the XI century. It was of great importance, since it was erected directly above the tomb of the Virgin. After a while, on the site of the ruins left from the church, the temple of the daughter of Baldwin II Melisenda began to rise. There she was buried.

Excursion from Sharm El Sheikh to Israel

Group bus excursion from Sharm El Sheikh to Israel, Palestine and the Dead Sea. Details of the tour, useful tips, crossing the Egypt-Israel border, security measures at the Dead Sea.

Tours in Sharm El Sheikh are very popular due to the Red Sea and the opportunity to relax on an all-inclusive basis. But for us personally, the choice fell in the direction of Sharm because of the opportunity to make an excursion to Israel.

A huge number of travel agencies offer excursions from Sharm to Israel: from tour operators (teztur, aneks, Pegasus, etc.) to local ones on the beach. Prices are different for everyone (from $ 60 and above). It all depends on how you know how to bargain. The excursion program, as a rule, is the same for everyone. Can be taken for 1 or 2 days. Days of excursions to Israel: Monday, Thursday, Saturday. Continue reading
