Jericho

How about visiting one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in the world? Jericho is a peaceful town that dates back to some 10,000 years and archaeologists have uncovered layers of 23 settlements.  Jericho, also known as Ariha (fragrant in Arabic), lies 260 meters below sea level, the lowest city in the world. The town embraces a number of religious and historical sites such as the 19th century Greek orthodox monastery that sits on the cliff face of the Mount of Temptation accessible via a 4,300 long cable car ride. Inside lies a cave where Jesus is believed to have stayed during his 40 days of fasting while fighting the temptation of the devil. The views from the top of the lush, fertile Jordan Valley are a real treat. Also not to be missed and only three kilometres north from Jericho is the palace of the Umayyad Caliph Hisham, which was built in the 7th century as a winter resort. It is an excellent example of Islamic art and architecture of the eighth century.
