Sites in Israel
Jerusalem is a city located in modern-day Israel and is considered by many to be one of the holiest places in the world. Jerusalem is a site of major significance for the three largest monotheistic religions: Judaism, Islam and Christianity
Machane Yehuda/known as the Shuk to the local population: A huge open-air market in the center of Jerusalem, with vendors selling fresh produce, breads, cookies, meats, and juices. The market is a cultural epicenter and draws massive crowds on Fridays. Come back at night when the vendors close and all the bars and eateries stay open for a terrific taste of Jerusalem nightlife.
The Old City: One of the most significant archaeological sites in the world, the Old City of Jerusalem is steeped in thousands of years of history. The Old City contains famous holy sites including: the Western Wall, the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, and the Dome of the Rock. You can walk the city yourself, or have a guide take you into the tunnels under the city for an unforgettable experience. Come hungry, as the Old City is also home to amazing food options, including some of the best Hummus in all Israel.
Yad Vashem: Yad Vashem is the largest Holocaust Museum in the world. One of the most visited sites in Israel, Yad Vashem’s exhibits are focused on what happened in the Holocaust, how it happened, and what future generations can learn from it. No visit to Israel is complete without this meaningful experience.
Entrance to the Holocaust History Museum and all other sites is free.
The Dead Sea/Masada: A short bus ride from Jerusalem will bring you to the Dead Sea and the ancient fortress of Masada. The Dead Sea is famous for its incredibly salty waters, which causes visitors to float on top of it. The Dead Sea also contains a special mud that has reinvigorating properties for skin, and is used in products around the world. The nearby mountaintop fortress of Masada was the site of a last stand effort in the Jewish Revolt against the Roman Empire. Wake up early to beat the heat and hike up the ancient snake path to the top of the mountain and gain breathtaking views of the surrounding valleys, as well as a well-preserved historical site.
