FREE events and sites to enjoy over the Pessach holiday!

Pessach in Israel

With Pessach just about upon us, we’d thought we’d round up a few of the great sites and attractions you can visit for FREE over the Pessach holiday!

Pessach is, of course, one of Israel’s biggest holidays, and, perhaps not surprisingly, many of Israel’s top attractions will be absolutely teeming (this might be a good read for those of you worried about the crowds). Hopefully some of the sites listed below will be a little less populated – our tip is to get there early

Heritage sites to visit for FREE this Pessach

First up, we have a list of 12 heritage sites across Israel (not sure why there’s only 12, but there you go, beggars can’t be choosers!) that will be free to access on April 26-27, from 10:00-16:00. Expect to enjoy a fun day out at any of those on the list below:

For more information you can try the official heritage website, but be warned, it’s not very clear in English…it might be a better idea to contact via telephone on 08-6560469.
