If we make a rating of the most "excursion" cities in the world, Jerusalem will definitely enter the top ten. The oldest city in the Middle East, a sacred place and an object of pilgrimage for believers from all over the world - Christians, Muslims, and Jews, Jerusalem with its unique history attracts millions of tourists who are ready to plunge into the whirlpool of excursions to the greatest historical and religious sights. It is better to go on a sightseeing excursion in English with an experienced guide - this will not only significantly increase the amount of information but also save time, especially since it will take more than one day to see all the shrines of Jerusalem. Most of the local attractions are religious in nature reflecting the controversial history of the city, which has repeatedly become the arena for bloody wars. The list of places that you should definitely include in your excursion route includes:
- Church of the Holy Sepulcher;
- Wall of Tears;
- Gethsemane garden;
- mount Zion;
- Dome of the Rock and Al-Aqsa Mosque;
- City of David;
1001guide also recommends visiting local museums - Rockefeller Archaeological Museum, Bible Lands Museum or Tycho's House. It is better to go shopping to the pedestrian streets of Ben Yehuda and Nahalat Shiva - here you can buy many souvenirs at the most attractive prices or sit in one of the cozy cafes.
