Jerusalem

— 5 nights

Holy City

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.
Get out of town with these interesting Jerusalem side-trips: Tel Aviv (Neve Tzedek & Tayelet) and Jaffa Old City (in Jaffa). On the 6th (Mon), spend a fun day on foot with Walking tours. There's still lots to do: get engrossed in the history at Yad Vashem - The World Holocaust Remembrance Center, let your taste buds guide you at a local gastronomic tour, admire the landmark architecture of Eglise du Saint-Sepulcre, and examine the collection at The Israel Museum, Jerusalem.

To find reviews, where to stay, photos, and tourist information, go to the Jerusalem trip planning website.

Tel Aviv to Jerusalem is an approximately 1-hour car ride. In September, daily temperatures in Jerusalem can reach 36°C, while at night they dip to 26°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 6th (Mon) so you can take a bus to Masada.

Land of Creation
Surprisingly diverse for such a narrow strip of land pressed against the Mediterranean, modern Israel only dates back to 1948, though the history of this "Holy Land" spans many millennia. The big three monotheistic religions--Christianity, Judaism, and Islam--maintain extremely strong ties to this part of the world, so you can expect to see plenty of historic churches, mosques, and synagogues during your holiday in Israel. Beyond the undeniable cultural appeal, Israel also offers impressive natural features, including the Dead Sea and Makhtesh Ramon, one of the world's biggest craters. As you tour Israel, you'll find yourself following in the footsteps of figures that helped shape the world thousands of years ago.
