Israel is an amazing destination for any traveler, full of historic and spiritual sites at every turn. With so much to take in, the last thing you want is to spend extra time battling crowds and waiting in lines.

Thankfully, the folks at Israel21c compiled a list of locations throughout Israel that aren’t as well known, but are certainly worth your time. If you’re planning a trip to Israel in the near future, check out these 11 destinations, including . . . 

The City of David

Visiting the Old City of Jerusalem is a must for every trip to Jerusalem, but for an even more focused experience that will allow you to delve into how the Israelites lived during the time of King David, this close-by early site, where Jerusalem was first restored, is another must-see.

There you’ll experience a 3D video explaining the historical significance of the site, a panoramic view that reveals the ancient topography of the biblical city, archaeological ruins from the First Temple period, and Hezekiah’s tunnels leading to the Western Wall complex, which contain water channels said to have existed since the time of Abraham. A nighttime outdoor multimedia show is also a recommended option here, depicting the story of rebuilding Jerusalem after the Babylonian exile, which is projected onto the ruins themselves.
