The fortification, perched high on a cliff-top plateau above the Dead Sea, was built by Herod the Great and was the site where 960 Jewish zealots committed mass suicide to evade capture by the Romans in 73 AD. Later, head for the shores of the Dead Sea, where you'll have plenty of time to float in the famously buoyant waters. Toward the end of the afternoon, return to Jerusalem. (B,D)
