    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!

    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.

    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.

    Use sun screen! Or better yet, wrap yourself up in cloth like a Bedouin in the desert.

    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.

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