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.
Appreciate the collections at Yad Vashem - The World Holocaust Remembrance Center and Israel Museum. Step off the beaten path and head to Mahane Yehuda Market and Hezekiah's Tunnel - Siloam Tunnel. There's still lots to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Western Wall, wander the streets of Israel ScaVentures - Day Tours, look for gifts at Jerusalem Pottery, and admire the striking features of Church of the Holy Sepulchre.
