Trains: Please be warned that trains on 27th May will start to run only 2 hours after sundown. This day is actually a religious holiday, but Israel Rail has not yet updated their schedule accordingly. In addition, there will be no trains on the evening/night of 26th May, since Shabbat will run straight into the Holy Day.
The weather in May is variable, with a chance of rain. Daytime temperatures are usually about 25 C. Remember to bring raincoats and warm outer wear for the evenings, and also sunscreen.
