We are planning a trip to Israel during Easter. We've been wanting to visit this interesting and beautiful country for a long time, and we now finally seem to have the time for it.
We assume that the popular sights are going to be crowded during the Holidays and that the price level of acommendation will be higher too. However, we were wondering if it is harder to get around as a tourist during there days. By that we mean - do things close down? Do the busses still run and so on?
Would you recommend touristis going at another time of the year, while not so crowded and a Little less expensive? We expect to cue, but we would like to have the time to go to Jerusalem, Bethlehem, the dead sea etc.
Also, my boyfriend is a Construction manager and therefore very interested in seeing Petra in Jordan. Will we manage all this in a week?
We welcome ALL input - thank you in advance
