Explore the narrow streets of Jerusalem, the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem or art, architecture, and artifacts at the Ilana Goor Museum in Old Jaffa. Spend a day in Cairo or around the Pyramids of Giza, the Egyptian Museum of Antiquities, and Khan El Khalili Bazaar. Wake the next day and venture overland to Alexandria and the Bibliotheca Aexandrina, Qait Bay Fort, the Roman Amphitheater, and your waiting ship.
