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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Church of All Nations (Basilica of the Agony) and Mount Herzl National Cemetery. Get some historical perspective at Jaffa Gate and Masada National Park. Change things up with these side-trips from Jerusalem: Bet Guvrin-Maresha National Park (in Kiryat Gat) and Jaffa Old City (in Jaffa). And it doesn't end there: don't miss a visit to Western Wall, get engrossed in the history at Yad Vashem - The World Holocaust Remembrance Center, see the interesting displays at Israel Museum, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Christian Quarter.

For where to stay, reviews, photos, and tourist information, refer to the Jerusalem route planning tool .
