Traffic on the roads of Israel can be tough to handle sometimes, but the recent construction of train lines has made life easier for the weary traveler. As they are, the trains have great routes, including several that are intercity and go through major tour hubs and the nice thing is that the trains both inexpensive and pretty comfortable.
With four stations in Tel Aviv alone, one could travel by train from the airport and wind up in one of Nahariya, beautiful Haifa, Beer Sheva or the old city, Jerusalem. Among the other available lines are more residential areas like Bet Shemesh, but also Modiin and Kfar Sava.
