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.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Jerusalem: Masada Fortress (in Arad), Masada National Park (in Masada) and Beit She'an (Beit She'an National Park & Bet She'an National Park). On the 6th (Fri), spend a fun day on foot with Walking tours. Spend the 8th (Sun) exploring nature at Bet Guvrin-Maresha National Park. Next up on the itinerary: get engrossed in the history at Yad Vashem - The World Holocaust Remembrance Center, delve into the distant past at Western Wall, admire the striking features of Church of the Holy Sepulchre, and see the interesting displays at Israel Museum.
