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.
Step out of Jerusalem with an excursion to Jaffa Old City in Jaffa--about 1h 20 min away. On the 27th (Mon), spend a fun day on foot with Walking tours. There's much more to do: take an in-depth tour of Yad Vashem - The World Holocaust Remembrance Center, examine the collection at Israel Museum, admire the landmark architecture of Church of the Holy Sepulchre, and take a stroll through Old City of Jerusalem.

To see reviews, traveler tips, photos, and other tourist information, use the Jerusalem trip itinerary planner.
