The well-preserved remains are accessed by cable car and offer an incredible view of the Roman camps and the Dead Sea. Drive past Qumran, a site close to where the famous Dead Sea Scrolls were found on your way to the Dead Sea where you can end the day “floating” in the salty, therapeutic waters. Spend the night in Jerusalem.
