Perfect 7 Day In Israel Itinerary

▶️Watch the Video

Here’s the perfect Israel itinerary for those who are planning to visit this country for 7-10 days (or even longer as I’ll be recommending other things and places) featuring Tel Aviv, Jerusalem and the best Israel outdoor destinations.

I’ll also give you some tips and recommendations to help you plan your trip.

Ready To Travel? Don’t Go Without Travel Insurance.

I recommend SafetyWing Nomad Insurance, an affordable travel insurance offering automatic monthly payments that you can cancel anytime. I’ve been using it since 2019, and I can assure you it’s the perfect solution for nomads like you and me. Learn more by reading our SafetyWing review.

Israel is such an interesting country! If you are wondering what to expect from Israel, here’s how I would describe it.

Tel Aviv is a vibrant city (where I could see myself living – and I don’t say that super often) with chill and laid-back vibes.

Then, you have Jerusalem which is rich in history. And the best part is probably all the outdoor possibilities out there! Add a bunch of amazing meals, friendly people and fun traditions and you’re almost there!

I had a great time in Israel! I know it’s a controversial destination and I’m not planning on diving into this complicated topic – but I truly enjoyed my time over there and I hope I can get back there someday!

Planning your Trip to Israel

If you have any questions on how to get to Israel and what to expect at the customs, I’d suggest you read this Israel travel blog post.

It will help you understand what’s the deal at the borders and hopefully, it will answer your questions about Israel.

Best time to visit Israel

If you want to be able to outside without suffocating, the best time to visit Israel would be May-April or September-October. These months are referring to Spring and Autumn.

What to Wear in Israel

For some reason, I was expecting Israel to be quite conservative in terms of clothing. I was totally wrong. For most parts, you can dress pretty casually and you wear shorts and tank tops in most places.  

Some places like in Jerusalem could be more conservative, but unless you visit some religious sites, you can dress pretty casually.

There are a lot of fun things to do in Israel! Here are my top recommendations on what to do in Tel Aviv, Jerusalem and outdoor-wise.

Tel Aviv (3 days)

Tel Aviv is a vibrant city where you can find great vibes! With the beach just on the edge of the city, you get the chill beach vibes as well as the city vibes which creates an excellent combination.

During spring and summertime, you’ll find a lot of people outside, sipping coffee on a blanket in the grass or simply hanging out. The weather is mostly sunny and there is no excuse to stay inside!

Check out these fun things to do in Tel Aviv to help you make the most of your time over there! This article features things like the best free things to do, the best experiences as well as great restaurants and bars that are worth checking out.

Jerusalem (1-2 days)

Jerusalem is an interesting city in terms of cultures. There are so many different quarters to explore and there are also cultural and religious sites that are worth visiting.

I personally went on a tour with a local who showed us the coolest spots in the old town. Although, Jerusalem wasn’t my favorite stop. Most attractions were quite crowded, which makes it less enjoyable.

Jerusalem is actually a great base if you want to do day trips and come back to the city at night time.

Ein Gedi is a little nature reserve found in the middle of the desert (it’s basically like an oasis!) and it’s very pretty.  It’s also a great spot for hiking or for dipping in waterfalls.
