Welcome to your most unpredictable holiday to date- ask any friend who’s visited Tel Aviv, and they will tell you that the city has surprised them each and every time, causing them to forget everything and just have a good time. Discover a city that never stops, a Tel Aviv that is fun, free, and fabulous. Tel Aviv is 107 years old but boasts a history of thousands of years. Strange, huh? A visit to the Old City of Jaffa reveals many layers of history and fascinating stories about the years in which even Napoleon was captivated by our city. One of the main reason we love Tel Aviv so much is the unlimited amount of freedom it offers. The freedom to lounge on its beautiful beaches or stroll around enjoying its impressive architecture, the freedom to choose from hundreds of restaurants and cafes, to enjoy a night at the opera or an evening movie, and of course the freedom to choose a drink on the bar or dance the night away at one of its pulsating clubs. OUTstanding Travel makes celebrating your Pride as seamless as possible, with accommodations at the best hotels in the city, incredible tours around Israel and insuring your entry to the most exclusive parties and fabulous events taking place during Pride 2018.

Plunge south to the lowest point on earth and ascend by cable car to the legendary mountain fortress of Masada. This ancient mountain fortress was built in the year 30 BCE by King Herod, whose architectural feats have left their mark throughout Israel. At the beginning of the great revolt against Rome in the year 68 CE, Masada was conquered by a group of Jewish zealots, and Masada became their last stronghold. In the year 72, the Romans besieged Masada and succeeded in reaching the steep fortress after constructing a huge earthen ramp on its western side. In the year 73, the 960 Jewish zealots living at the top of Masada chose to commit suicide rather than fall into the hands of the Romans. Their deeds left behind a saga of courage, heroism, and martyrdom.
