Israel is a small country and going around doesn’t require you to catch a flight. Two major cities of interest when it comes to tourist destinations are Jerusalem and Tel Aviv and both are just an hour of travel away via public transportation. However, most of the biblical Israel tours feature locations in the Holy City of Jerusalem given that there are many biblical events in both the Old Testament and New Testament that took place in this city.
