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.

And it doesn't end there: take an in-depth tour of Yad Vashem - The World Holocaust Remembrance Center, indulge in some culinary diversions at a local gastronomic tour, contemplate the long history of Old City of Jerusalem, and enjoy breathtaking views from The Museum of the Tower of David.
