Jerusalem

— 5 nights

Holy City

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.
Old City of Jerusalem and Western Wall will appeal to history buffs. Yad Vashem - The World Holocaust Remembrance Center and The Western Wall Tunnels are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Explore Jerusalem's surroundings by going to Gan HaKaktusim (in Holon), Jaffa (Jaffa Old City & Zadik Gallery) and Tel Aviv (Beit Hatfutsot - The Museum of the Jewish People, Joseph Bau House Museum, &more). There's still lots to do: contemplate the long history of Mt of Olives, admire the striking features of Church of Saint Anne, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Bethesda, and see the interesting displays at The Israel Museum, Jerusalem.

Land of Creation
Surprisingly diverse for such a narrow strip of land pressed against the Mediterranean, modern Israel only dates back to 1948, though the history of this "Holy Land" spans many millennia. The big three monotheistic religions--Christianity, Judaism, and Islam--maintain extremely strong ties to this part of the world, so you can expect to see plenty of historic churches, mosques, and synagogues during your holiday in Israel. Beyond the undeniable cultural appeal, Israel also offers impressive natural features, including the Dead Sea and Makhtesh Ramon, one of the world's biggest craters. As you tour Israel, you'll find yourself following in the footsteps of figures that helped shape the world thousands of years ago.
