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.
Visit Herod's Western Palace and Beit Shearim for their historical value. You'll discover tucked-away gems like St. Joseph Church and Masada Fortress. Change things up with these side-trips from Jerusalem: Bet Guvrin-Maresha National Park (in Kiryat Gat) and Nazareth (Greek Orthodox Church of the Annunciation, Nazareth Village, & more). There's lots more to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Hurva Synagogue, stroll the grounds of Mount Herzl National Cemetery, contemplate the long history of Church of the Visitation, and appreciate the extensive heritage of Tayelet Haas Promenade.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Ben Gurion International Airport. In October in Jerusalem, expect temperatures between 84°F during the day and 65°F at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 17th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
