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.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Israel Museum and Old City of Jerusalem. Get some historical perspective at Masada National Park and Church of the Holy Sepulchre. Venture out of the city with trips to Tel Aviv (Neve Tzedek & Tayelet), Masada Fortress (in Arad) and Jaffa Old City (in Jaffa). The adventure continues: get engrossed in the history at Yad Vashem - The World Holocaust Remembrance Center, take in the spiritual surroundings of The Garden Tomb, steep yourself in history at Mt of Olives, and browse the eclectic array of goods at Mahane Yehuda Market.
