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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Church of All Nations (Basilica of the Agony) and The Yitzhak Rabin Center. Your inner history buff will appreciate Jaffa Gate and Mt of Olives. Get out of town with these interesting Jerusalem side-trips: Arad (Adi Miraro Jewelry & Masada Fortress), Tel Aviv (Independence Hall Museum in the Shalom Mayer Tower & Palmach Museum) and Jaffa Old City (in Jaffa). There's lots more to do: get engrossed in the history at Yad Vashem - The World Holocaust Remembrance Center, explore the ancient world of Western Wall, take a stroll through Old City of Jerusalem, and admire the striking features of Church of Saint Anne.
