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 Hezekiah's Tunnel - Siloam Tunnel and Mahane Yehuda Market. Do some cultural sightseeing at Yad Vashem - The World Holocaust Remembrance Center and Via Dolorosa (Way of the Cross). You'll find plenty of places to visit near Jerusalem: Tel Aviv (Palmach Museum & Nachlat Binyamin Pedestrian Mall) and Jaffa Old City (in Jaffa). There's lots more to do: explore the ancient world of Western Wall, take a stroll through Old City of Jerusalem, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Church of the Holy Sepulchre, and steep yourself in history at Mount of Olives.
