Herod the Great chose to build a palace and fortress atop the curiously shaped mountain over 2000 years ago. Later, it served as the tragic last stand of the Jewish Zealots against the Roman armies.
Next you will travel to a leading Dead Sea resort for lunch and a unique experience to stay afloat in the Dead Sea, one of the saltiest bodies of water in the world. Cradled in the lowest place on Earth, the Dead Sea is so called because the mineral-rich waters are too salty for any fish to survive. Here you will also pamper yourself with a rejuvenating 25-minute spa treatment. You have a choice of either a Mud Wrap with natural Dead Sea mud rich in minerals and known for its health properties and positive impact on the body, muscles, joints, and skin. Or select a Classic Mini Swedish Massage. This relaxing massage is designed to improve your circulation, plus relieve and soothe muscle tension.
