The place is amazing, lots of history, great view, must see place, the bad thing is that handicaps cant actually come here if they have a wheel chair, I think this must be fixed if the place says it gives easy access to them...

Much to see. Much to learn. Much to understand. Take a tour, or get a book and read up before you go to truly understand and appreciate. Advice: take a hat, and bottle of water, wear comfortable walking shoes.

This is a site that has to be seen if you go to Israel. The history and beauty of Masada is a site. The view from the top is amazing. My only recommendation is bring water when you go to the top.

Before your hike up the mountain or before your cablecar ride, take an hour to visit the museum to learn the history and get a preview of the site. It is well-done.
