Jerusalem, Old and New
A holy, beautiful and sometimes bewildering city
At Jerusalem - one of the most important cities in western civilization - you can find some of the holiest sites of all three major monotheistic religions. A tour of the city can take you from its 5,000-year-old origins, through its Judean, Roman, Ottomon days (to name a few) and to the modern, cosmopolitan city it is today.
You can spend your whole life here and still find new places, but a trip of 1 to 2 days will usually cover all the important sights. I offer pilgrimage trips of Christian sites, more Jewish-oriented trips, and also trips focused on the architectural and cultural Muslim sites - but whatever trip we choose, there is always the opportunity to learn more about other cultures.
Distance: Short to medium urban walks.
Sights: The Holy Sepulchre, The Temple Mount (Dome of the Rock), the Western Wall, the lively and delicious Mahane Yehuda Market, Mt. Scopus, the Garden Tomb, the Orthodox churches of Olive Mountain and the Old City.
