Sex and the City’s Sarah Jessica Parker arrived in Israel on Friday with her family as part of a private visit touring the country.

Parker, known for her role as Carrie Bradshaw on the wildly popular television series Sex and the City, was spotted at the airport as well as eating dinner with Nadav Peretz, owner of the gay tourism company, OUTstanding Travel, according to Ynet and i24News.

Parker will be visiting the country’s historical sites over the next week accompanied by Peretz’s organization.
