Israel — From the Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem to the glittering blocks of Bauhaus architecture in seaside Tel Aviv, Israel remains one of the world’s most captivating destinations. Because it’s small, with an area just over 10,000 square miles (slightly larger than the state of Maryland), you can experience a satisfying slice of the country’s remarkable history, cutting-edge art scene, sophisticated cuisine, and infamous nightlife in less than a week. Of course, allowing at least two weeks to settle into the timeworn rhythms of this ancient land has rewards of its own.
