Israele_Shore_Tours Israel is a state in the region of Palestine, on the shores of the eastern part of the Mediterranean. It rises on those territories which approximately correspond to where the Bible locates the ancient kingdom of Judah and Israel. It is a very lively and culturally complex country, based on the incredible diversity and heritage of its population. The country is made up by deserts for the most part, even if there are many green hills covered by vines and olive trees. Without a doubt it belongs to the Middle East but in certain aspects it is a very western country.
