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.
Yad Vashem - The World Holocaust Remembrance Center and Tower of David Museum will appeal to museum buffs. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Western Wall and Israel Museum. There's much more to do: get engrossed in the history at Old City of Jerusalem, stop by Baltinester Jewelry & Judaica, contemplate the long history of Mount of Olives, and hunt for treasures at Mahane Yehuda Market.
