Today it’s time to head to Israel’s Red-Sea Riviera of Eilat via the Negev Wine Route.
Don’t miss a visit to the Nabatean city of Avdat, a central city on the ancient Incense Route connecting Petra and the port city of Gaza. Avdat is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, in recognition of the innovations of the ancient inhabitants: the farmers, who utilized every drop of water to make the desert bloom, and the caravans who carried not only goods but ideas and cultures across thousands of miles.
Drive south through Mitspe Ramon and the geological wonderland of the Ramon Crater, enjoying the Visitors' Center and a walk along the edge of the crater or on one of the hiking routes.
