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.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Mt of Olives and Masada National Park. Let the collections at Israel Museum and Yad Vashem - The World Holocaust Remembrance Center capture your imagination. Step out of Jerusalem with an excursion to Masada Fortress in Arad--about 1h 05 min away. There's lots more to do: don't miss a visit to Western Wall, trek along Sataf Nature Trail, contemplate the long history of Dome of the Rock, and admire the landmark architecture of Church of the Holy Sepulchre.
