TravelFilter: I'm going to Israel for two weeks in July. Help me figure out how to travel around and see everything.
I'm working on an archaeological site in Israel for a little over two weeks in July. I have two weekends from Friday afternoon to Sunday afternoon off and I'd like to go see touristy stuff, like the Old City in Jerusalem and the Dead Sea. However, I'm staying at the Kibbutz Revadim and I'm not sure how hard it will be to travel on the weekend. The site I'm working at said that they will look at any travel plans people have on the weekends and give suggestions about safety and the like.
I'm 20, female and only speak English. I'm hoping that there will be other people at the site who want to do some sightseeing as well, but I won't know until I get there.
Suggestions? Recommendations for traveling or places I definitely shouldn't miss? Precautions?
