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.
Kick off your visit on the 31st (Tue): take a stroll through Old City of Jerusalem, admire the striking features of Church of the Holy Sepulchre, then contemplate the long history of Jaffa Gate (Bab al-Khalil), and finally stroll through Tayelet Haas Promenade. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the 1st (Wed): take in the spiritual surroundings of Church of All Nations (Basilica of the Agony), shop like a local with Via Dolorosa (Way of the Cross), then look for gifts at Jerusalem Pottery, then look for gifts at M. Pomeranz Bookseller, and finally take an in-depth tour of Yad Vashem - The World Holocaust Remembrance Center.

To find where to stay, photos, and more tourist information, refer to the Jerusalem travel itinerary creator.

Kingston, Canada to Jerusalem is an approximately 23.5-hour flight. You'll lose 7 hours traveling from Kingston to Jerusalem due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Kingston in October, you will find days in Jerusalem are much hotter (32°C), and nights are somewhat warmer (12°C).
