This sun-drenched Mediterranean town on the Turkish Riviera is a major resort with a beautiful crescent bay, dramatic cliffs, and jagged mountains. It is an attractive city with shady palm-lined boulevards and a prize-winning marina. In picturesque old quarter, narrow streets and old wooden houses huddle against ancient city walls. Antalya's visitors come see the old town with its picturesque harbor and excellent Archaeological Museum. Its outstanding exhibits provide fascinating glimpses into the life of the region. In the surrounding area are additional attractions such as Aspendos, Perge and Side. Their remains of antiquity are considered among the most impressive sites. Visit Hadrian's Gate and Main Square, which with its landmark clock tower offers views of the bay and distant mountain peaks. Karatay Medrese (Theological College) exemplifies the best of Seljuk stone carving. Ataturk Museum features a collection of interesting memorabilia commemorating the founder of Turkey.

In the Lebanese capital Beirut, scars from conflict can still be seen – but is no longer a focal point. Historical downtown has been revived to nearly its pre-war glory where several government buildings and churches beckon to be visited. The new restaurants and cafes in the area will certainly draw visitors in and make them feel a part of Beiruti life. What is more fascinating than the renovated structures are the colorful people that flock to the Corniche, a wide boardwalk area near the shoreline. Here the essence of Beirut can truly be appreciated where it’s diverse mix of religions and cultures come together in the rituals of daily life. Whether it is admiring the renovations, visiting the recently reopened museums or sipping coffee at the Corniche, Beirut is a city not to be missed.

Some of the most famous beaches, including Phinikoudes, have water sport activities as well as fishing and boating excursions. Phinikoudes also boasts a strip of cafes, bars, clubs and restaurants on the beach front, which particularly gets crowded during the summer months. Lanarca is also an excellent snorkeling and diving location with some of the finest shipwrecks in the world.

Ashdod is one of Israel’s largest ports and a living museum of ancient history. It was one of the five cities of giants, and it was here the Philistines brought the captured Holy Ark, sacred to the Hebrews. Ashdod’s 23-level tel (archaeological dig) lies southeast of the modern city. Among the remains of the 10th century CE Fatimid Fortress, archaeologists discovered an early Arabic document recounting Byzantine ships once brought Muslim prisoners to Ashdod to sell back to their families.
