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 Jerusalem's surroundings by going to Jaffa Old City (in Jaffa) and Tayelet (in Tel Aviv). There's lots more to do: get engrossed in the history at Yad Vashem - The World Holocaust Remembrance Center, steep yourself in history at Eglise du Saint-Sepulcre, take in the spiritual surroundings of The Garden Tomb, and get to know the fascinating history of Old City of Jerusalem.

For traveler tips, ratings, photos, and tourist information, refer to the Jerusalem day trip planning site .

Dublin, Ireland to Jerusalem is an approximately 9.5-hour combination of flight and bus. You'll lose 2 hours traveling from Dublin to Jerusalem due to the time zone difference. When traveling from Dublin in November, plan for much warmer days and somewhat warmer nights in Jerusalem: temperatures range from 29°C by day to 17°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 27th (Wed) early enough to travel to Eilat.
