Winter in Israel is the perfect time for a pilgrimage

Winter in Israel is a far cry from European or North American winters. Daytime temperatures generally don’t drop below 12°C in most areas. Snow birds looking for a respite from the cold come to Israel every year. The short winter (December – March) and relatively balmy weather make Israel a very appealing destination – for tourists and pilgrims alike.

So, if you want to visit the holy Christian sites in Israel, winter is a terrific opportunity to do so. And, since prices are usually lower in winter,check with your travel agent to see if there are any special deals.
