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.
Step off the beaten path and head to The Yitzhak Rabin Center and Church of All Nations (Basilica of the Agony). Museum-lovers will get to explore Yad Vashem - The World Holocaust Remembrance Center and Ilana Goor Museum. Explore Jerusalem's surroundings by going to Jaffa Old City (in Jaffa) and Tayelet (in Tel Aviv). There's still lots to do: explore the world behind art at The Israel Museum, Jerusalem, steep yourself in history at Mt of Olives, admire the landmark architecture of Church of Saint Anne, and delve into the distant past at Western Wall.

Plan my trip to Jerusalem with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

Tel Aviv to Jerusalem is an approximately 1-hour car ride. In February, plan for daily highs up to 24°C, and evening lows to 11°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 18th (Thu) so you can go by car to Eilat.

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.
