Massada, Israel, is one of the most beautiful and inspiring places in the country. From an epic fortress built on top of a mountain by incredible engineers, to the story of more than nine hundred Jewish rebels defying the Roman legions to the amazing view of Jordan and the Dead Sea, Massada is an awe-inspiring place that will take your breath away with beauty and with history.
Located near the Dead Sea, the historic site of Massada is accessible easily from car, private tour, or by public buses from Jerusalem. It is open from the hours of 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. in winter and 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. during the summer. The park is open during Shabbat, but please be aware that public buses do not run, so plan accordingly. You can take a self-guided tour up the snake path (seven hundred and fifty stairs that take on average one hour to climb) or you can ride the cable car to and from the top. Some tours offer a sunrise tour at an additional cost.
The visitors centre contains amenities such as free parking, ATM, restaurants, souvenir shops, Dead Sea make up and beauty supplies, and a cafe. There is no grocery store or laundromat and the visitors centre is rather expensive.
