Star-studded visit: Israeli supermodel Bar Refaeli and her boyfriend, Hollywood actor Leonardo DiCaprio, landed at Ben-Gurion Airport on Sundy along with DiCaprio's mother, Irmelin, and "Entourage" actor Kevin Connolly, for a few day visit to the Holy Land.
The group arrived in Israel after a stopover in Jordan and a week-long visit to Egypt with former supermodel Naomi Campbell and her partner.

During their stay in Egypt, the glamorous couple celebrated DiCaprio's 36th birthday and cruised the Nile River.
Minutes after arriving in Israel, the couple left the airport under heavy security. As part of the security arrangements in the days leading to the visit, taller-than-average security guards were instructed to create a sterile zone, so that no one can interrupt the distinguished guests.

During the next week, the group plans to visit the Western Wall, the country's top nightclubs and other tourist destinations. Refaeli's entourage, which will stay at the Dan Hotel in Tel Aviv, is scheduled to leave Israel on Thursday, but might depart earlier – especially if the media hustle around them proves unmanageable.
Three and a half years ago, DiCaprio visited Israel for the first time and stayed with Refaeli's family in Hod Hasharon. During a visit to the Western Wall tunnels, DiCaprio's bodyguards started a brawl with paparazzi, which led to the star's early departure and raised doubts on whether the actor would ever visit the Holy Land again.
