The ancient port of Ashdod is the port to Tel Aviv, situated on Israel's Mediterranean coast. In ancient times the city was known as Jaffa, and traces of the city's first settlement were discovered atop a hill above the harbour. Jaffa is a former Arab town of old buildings and winding streets, while Tel Aviv has wide avenues lined with trees and modern apartment houses. Ashdod is also the gateway to one of the world's most captivating cities, Jerusalem. From here you can also visit Bethlehem and the Church of the Nativity, to see the shrine built over the place where Christ was born, or Massada and the Dead Sea.
The Phoenicians, Greeks and Macabees each ruled Jaffa for a time, and the introduction of Christianity began with the preachings of Apostle Peter. During the eleventh century, the Crusaders fortified the city, and in more recent times, Israeli forces captured the city from the Arabs in 1948, declaring it the state of Israel.
