Few places in the world boast such a long history and such a rich multiethnic culture as Jerusalem, a city sacred to Jews, Muslims, and Christians.
For shopping fun, head to Mahane Yehuda Market or Baltinester Jewelry & Judaica. Get a sense of the local culture at Yad Vashem - The World Holocaust Remembrance Center and Jewish Quarter. Change things up with a short trip to Kalia Beach in Kalia (about 44 minutes away). The adventure continues: take in the spiritual surroundings of Western Wall, examine the collection at Israel Museum, don't miss a visit to The Cardo, and contemplate the long history of Hezekiah's Tunnel - Siloam Tunnel.

Tel Aviv
Called the "White City" thanks to the color of its World Heritage-listed architectural landmarks, Tel Aviv serves as Israel's modern and cosmopolitan second city.
Museum-lovers will get to explore Ilana Goor Museum and Independence Hall Museum. Nachlat Binyamin Pedestrian Mall and Frishman Beach are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Get out of town with these interesting Tel Aviv side-trips: Akko Old Town (in Acre), The Church of the Annunciation (in Nazareth) and Dado Beach (in Haifa). And it doesn't end there: hike along Sharon Beach National Park, take a stroll through Jaffa Old City, shop like a local with Dizengoff Street, and explore the striking landscape of Caesarea National Park.
