Product Details

Welcome to Masada Fortress, Israel Self Guided Walking Tour!

Welcome to Masada. Declared as a UNESCO world heritage site in 2001, Masada was discovered by archaeologists in the 1950's. The term 'Masada' means 'a strong foundation' in Hebrew. 960 Jews committed suicide atop Masada as they would rather die rather than be captured alive by the Romans.

The tour will dive in-depth with stories of the fortress and the siege that followed after it was built.
