5 Of The Most Beautiful Cities You’ll Ever Witness

Published on April 12, 2017 by IBMT

The world is full of amazing places, ancient cities, and historical landmarks. But for now, here are five of the most beautiful cities that you can visit. You can just imagine the possibilities!

Florence – Italy

Every city in Italy tells a story – and for Florence it’s the story of the Renaissance. Throughout the city, the amazing architecture illustrates thousands of years of society, civilization, and culture. It’s truly an incredible travel destination, with the finest locally sourced foods, and a vast array of finely crafted Tuscan wines. Very much a “walking city”, Florence offers history and antiquity at every corner. With unforgettable sightseeing opportunities, there’s never enough time to do it all.

Tel Aviv – Israel

Tel Aviv is the heartbeat of Israel – a bustling metropolitan centre without compare. The weather is nearly perfect right around the year, and summertime at the ocean is especially happening. The city is simply overflowing with history, culture, food and entertainment. The Mediterranean, the beach scene, and the recreational options are a perfect fit for every age group. To top things off, unique Bauhaus architecture surrounds the entire inner city, and the city of Jaffa is a walk away.

Dublin – Ireland

Dublin is the capital of the Republic of Ireland, rich in history, with buildings that date back to the 13th century. St. Patrick’s Cathedral is an imposing landmark, and the huge expanse of Phoenix Park contains the Dublin Zoo. Amongst the countless visitor attractions, the Guinness Storehouse retains top spot, along with the National Museum, which has the most complete collection of Celtic metalwork in the world. And let’s not forget the cobbled streets and classic drinking holes.

Zagreb – Croatia

Zagreb, Croatia’s northwestern capital is visibly distinguished by architecture from the Austro-Hungarian period. Legendary monuments and historic landmarks abound – like the gothic Zagreb Cathedral, and 13th century St. Mark’s Church. The pedestrian-friendly Tkalčićeva Street is lined with wonderful outdoor cafés, while the main square (Ban Jelačić) incorporates shopping, parks and museums. Zagreb has it all:  from culture, to arts, to music, to architecture, to gastronomy.

Monteverde – Costa Rica

Monteverde is situated in the mountainous northwest of Costa Rica. Renowned for its bio-diverse “forests in the clouds”, the Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve is home to myriad wildlife species, unlike anything in the world. Eco-tourist or not, Costa Rica has the most breathtaking scenery, uniquely special marine life, and a welcoming local people. Established in the 50’s by Quaker families, Monteverde’s dairy farms are renowned (along with the Monteverde Cheese Factory).

One of the best ways to visit these cities is by organized tour, and at IBMT Tours the options are countless.

The IBMT Bar Mitzvah tour was fantastic! It was the perfect blend of family time and peer group time, of sites with religious/historic significance and just plain fun. The guide was personable and informative, and even the bus driver was great. All the details were attended to and you didn’t have to concern yourself with or worry about a thing. It was a true vacation. We would highly recommend it to anyone. If you are going to Eilat, Petra is a must!

We went on a church group to the Holyland with IBMT Tours and had a great trip, everything was planned for us perfectly. There was over 123 people in four different bus groups and things went smoothly, I thought it was going to be hectic with that many people in the group but IBMT did a wonderful job and made sure the buses did not go convoy, every bus had its own time table and itinerary for the day, our guide Dani was so knowledgeable and loving. We love you IBMT and we will recommend you guys. Thanks for everything you have done for us.

We just returned from Israel on an IBMT Bar Mitzvah Tour for our three grandsons.  We had enough family members to warrant our own bus.  After checking out many tour companies we went with IBMT and all of us were glad we did.  The hotels were fabulous and the rooms allotted even more so.  From the INBAL in Jerusalem, KFAR BLUM in the Galilee, the SHERATON in Tel Aviv, to the ROYAL BEACH in Eilat we couldn’t have asked for more.  Our meals were equally excellent.  Beginning with a welcome reception at the INBAL to the closing dinner at the CANAAN restaurant in Tel Aviv one and all loved them.

It was a busy tour made even more so by my husband who was determined the grandchildren see “everything”.  Fortunately for us, we had the best guide when Ornan (from IBMT) gave us GADI.  All of the groups loved their guides but Gadi was  special.  He was able to reach the kids (ages 7-13) as well as the adults.  His knowledge, willingness to adjust the schedule, and good nature gave him a soft spot in all of our hearts.  He filled in at Yad Vashem when the guide droned on a bit too much for some of us.  He searched out a cemetery where a father, grandfather and great grandfather was buried and proceeded to enlighten us on the rituals and customs of a military cemetery.  He adjusted our times to include those little extras.  When weather precluded the camels, we visited Qumran.  After the Bar Mitzvahs, some wanted to walk down Masada - again, no problem. 

We loved everything.  Friday night dinner with an Israeli family (coincidentally the husband was from Toronto), meeting the soldiers on the kibbutz, the Druze lunch, sampling different foods at the shuk, the bullet factory and on and on.  Although the weather was precarious in December, it didn’t stop us and we were able to celebrate Chanukah in Israel...menorahs  everywhere, sufganiyot of every kind, celebrations in the street galore.

Would we recommend this tour...without a moments hesitation.  We had a family trip of a lifetime.  Thank you also to our bus driver Louie, whom we all loved and who got us around safely. 

“Gadi” - what else can we say ... g double o - d, j-o-b. Good job, good job.  V-e-r-y-n-i-c-e, very nice, very nice.💕



I cannot imagine a better, more organized, more perfect experience! IBMT went above and beyond all expectations!

Loved the trip! The itinerary was fantastic and really kept us moving. We were able to see and do so much. Best of all was our tour guide Natalie. She was very kind, patient and extremely knowledgeable on every aspect of Israel.
