There are plenty of tourist attractions in Israel. Probably hundreds of really interesting places you can visit.

I have a little disclaimer before listing my top ten must-see attractions: This list is based on my own point of view. If you agree/disagree or just want to let me know what your favorite attractions in Israel are then please add your comment at the bottom of the article.
