In detail

Jerusalem Old and New

The spiritual capital of roughly two-thirds of the world’s population, as well the capital city of the State of Israel, Jerusalem draws 3.5 million visitors every year to sites sacred to Jews, Muslims, and Christians alike.

Sites such as the Dome of the Rock on Temple Mount, the Western Wall, and Tomb of King David, the Mount of Olives, the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, and the Hall of the Last Supper are all waiting to be discovered by you.

Get lost searching for these attractions in the walled portion of Jerusalem known as the Old City—or navigate the labyrinth of medieval alleyways connecting the Muslim, Jewish, Christian, and Armenian quarters. Each with its own set of sacred sites, residential districts, and bazaars.

Most visitors to Jerusalem seek the sacred and spiritual within the bounds of the Old City. Whereas most of Jerusalem’s residents live in the New City, which has the amenities to serve them. Visit the Market to see the spices, teas, sweets, and foods that maintain Israel’s status as the land of milk and honey. Or complete the museum circuit of Yad Vashem Holocaust Remembrance Museum and the Bible Lands Museum.
