Masada and Dead Sea from Eilat 1 day
Masada and Dead Sea from Eilat 1 day Itinerary
Dead Sea is the only sea in the world devoid of plant or fish. It is also the lowest point on Earth. The Dead Sea is said to be healthy for the skin and a cure for some skin ailments. Enjoy a nice swim in the clear refreshing and soothing waters.
Masada was built on a plateau on the edge of the desert. King Herod built 2 palaces here with a swimming pool. You can tour the ruins of the palaces. It took 15,000 troops to conquer Masada, by building a 375 foot ramp from bedrock stones. There are still the ruins of the city that you can view today, from a synagogue storehouse, bath houses, water cisterns, and barracks from the Roman soldiers.
