Israel is a country in Western Asia that shares a border with Lebanon in the north, Syria in the northeast, Jordan on the east, and Egypt on the south. Despite its small size, Israel is home to a variety of geographic features, from the Negev desert in the south to the inland fertile Jezreel Valley, mountain ranges of the Galilee, Carmel and toward the Golan in the north. Temperatures in Israel vary in the different cities, but overall, it has pretty temperate climates. Jerusalem can be cold, windy and sometimes snowy in winter. Coastal cities such as Tel Aviv and Haifa have more of a Mediterranean climate with long, hot summers and rainy winters. Beersheba and Negev have an arid climate with hot, dry summers and cool, dry winter. Tourism, especially religious tourism, is an important industry in Israel. Travelers are drawn to Israel for many reasons including the country's temperate climate, beaches, archaeological and historical sites, and unique geography. Whether you're traveling to Israel for religion purposes or to explore the history, you are bound to have a great experience.
