Hello, we are planning to take my mom to Israel in April and need accessible accommodations. My mom is a stroke survivor on a walker and uses a wheelchair. We are traveling with a caregiver and plan on buying/renting a wheelchair in Israel and renting a car to get around. Any help, feedback, guidance is very much appreciated.

I spent this past Christmas in Israel and the Holy Land.Flew into Tel Aviv, stayed at the Dan Hotel. Then to Caesarea and the Sea of Galilee staying at the Scots Hotel.Then to Nazareth, Bethlehem and to Jerusalem and a wealth of tourist sites, staying at the King David Hotel.Bottom line?Don’t go if you’re in a wheelchair.None of the 5 star hotels above had accessible rooms.And everywhere in and around the ancient religious sites are steps (yes, some ramps, but few).And one oddity.I can walk a little, and tried the Via Dolorosa. But with the cobblestone road, almost impossible.However, the Holocaust Museum was 100% wheelchair accessible.But the National Museum containing the Dead Sea Scrolls?Forget about it.
