    Did you know that Masada was built on top of a flat rock plateau at the western end of the Judean Desert? Masada means “fortress” and it is approximately 1800 x 900 feet in size. Our passengers love!

    It's a rather big place, so set aside at least a few hours if you want to see everything. The descending from on foot takes about 45 mins, the terrain is not so difficult and a big experience.

    If going up without a tour guide, do an audio tour. The ruins aren't as interesting without the back stories and color commentary. Cover your head to stay cooler from the sun.

    Built by Herod, King of Judea, Masada was a palatial fortress in the style of the ancient Roman East.

    Masada is UNESCO World Heritage Site.The fortress was the last stand of the Jewish rebels who rose against the Roman Empire in 66 CE. Check out the intricate water cisterns throughout the site!

    Site opens an hour before sunrise, which gives you just enough time to hike up the Snake Path and view it from the top.

    Increíbles ruinas romanas en la cima de una montaña. Importante parte de la historia Judía. Hace bastante calor, se recomienda agua y algún gorro. Espectacular vista del Mar Muerto y el desierto.

    Берите много воды и головные уборы. Не забудьте крем с хорошим spf. Возьмите семечки или хлебушек, немного. Тогда у вас получится приманить скворцов на руку))

    Невероятное место. История в каждом камне. При этом отлично организовано с туристической точки зрения. Много туалетов, точка питания, магазины, фуникулер.

    Mucho sol, así que traigan sombrero, agua fría, y pónganse mucho bloqueador (en serio mucho). Espectacular vista, e increíble historia. Si estás poco tiempo en Israel, debes visitar este lugar.

    Красивое место с интересной историей. Советую брать побольше воды, почитать что тут к чему перед поездкой и подниматься на фуникулере

    Рассает на Масаде - даже слов нет чтобы описать. 2км подъема того стоят!!! Неописуемо. Подниматься по змеиной тропе 40-60 мин, фуникулер работает с 8 утра

    Если ехать с запада, то можно чуть срезать путь - ехать до конца 3199 дороги. Подъедете к комплексу с западных ворот. Дорога на 100% проезжая - ходят рейсовые автобусы. НО с запада нет фуникулера.

    зимой идеально здесь. не жарко, не особо многолюдно. поднимались на фуникулере, видел утомленные лица отчаянных пешеходов, взбирающихся по змеиной тропе. пешком идти не советую - долго
