Saint Catherine’s Monastery

Daily departure from Eilat

Early morning pick up (05.30 am) and drive to Taba border. Cross the border into Egypt and drive through the magnificent Sinai desert. The Sinai is a triangular piece of land inhabited by the Bedouin – the nomadic people of the desert.
As we drive, marvel at the contrast between the different shades of blue of the Red Sea and the varying colors and formations of the mountains of the desert.
Arrive at Saint Catherine’s for a visit to the oldest monastery in the world where the monks still go about their daily chores.
Visit the chamber of skulls and the site of the burning bush.
After lunch, there will be a visit to the rock of inscriptions and, time and weather permitting, a chance to swim in the warm clear waters of the Red Sea.
Return to Eilat.
