A storied land that can be both sere and fertile, the Middle East and North Africa exist within a tangle of cultures, religions and empires, both ancient and modern. Here, you’ll find cities from myth that still hum with life as well as people who live in the world’s most extreme climates. You can explore temples and colossal monuments that date back millennia, as well as landscapes of otherworldly beauty. We’ll help you uncover new perspectives on sights like Petra and the Pyramids of Giza, as well as delve into the hospitable soul of the region. You could find yourself slipping into a Bedouin tent to share mint tea, cruising the Nile on a wooden dahabiyya, taking a tagine cooking class or bargaining for a hand-knotted carpet in Morocco’s souqs or even exploring the most sacred sites in Israel, the biblical Holy Land.
