Holidays in
Jerusalem

A mesmerising place of pilgrimage

Jerusalem draws those on a spiritual journey, as well as visitors simply fascinated by the country’s biblical past. But you don’t have to be a history buff to enjoy this beguiling city. It also offers spectacular scenery and is a good launchpad for exploring. You’ll discover some of the world’s most famous religious landmarks on holidays to Jerusalem.

Climb up to the Mount of Olives for sweeping views over the city’s maze-like streets. Visit the Garden of Gethsemane, where Jesus prayed after the Last Supper. And save some time to see the Wailing Wall, where Jewish worshippers pray at the faith’s most sacred site. Just south of Jerusalem you’ll find Bethlehem, where you can travel back in time more than 2,000 years to the birthplace of Jesus.

A major place of pilgrimage for Christians, its winding, cobbled streets play host to the Church of the Nativity – built on the cave believed to be Jesus’ birthplace. Guides take you to an underground cave found beneath the church, and a silver star marks the holy spot.

BEST ATTRACTIONS TO SEE IN JERUSALEM

The Old City

With its ancient walls and spindly alleyways, this part of Jerusalem is movie set-like, and home to big-hitters like the Church of the Holy Sepulchre.

Yad Vashem

It’s one of the world’s most sombre memorials, but Jerusalem’s Yad Vashem museum was built to honour the six million Jewish victims of the Holocaust.

Dome of the Rock

This Islamic shrine is located on the Temple Mount, and it’s one of the most photographed buildings in the world.

YOUR JERUSALEM QUESTIONS, ANSWERED

Given that this is one of the world’s most important religious places, be sure to dress respectfully and show as little skin as possible.

Hummus and falafel are staples, as are Israeli stuffed vine leaves, which are packed with everything from mushroom to ground beef.

This is a year-round destination, but between April and May and October and November expect cooler temperatures and lesser crowds.
