Overview

One of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in the world, sacred to the three Abrahamic religions, and a major sticking point in the Israel-Palestine issue, Jerusalem is a city that conjures strong emotions.

The Old City of East Jerusalem is home to most of the famous religious sites, such as the Temple Mount, the Western Wall, the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, the Dome of the Rock, and al-Aqsa Mosque.

As well as the religious locations, Jerusalem has museums such as the Israel Museum – which houses some of the Dead Sea Scrolls – and the national memorial to the victims of the Holocaust, and cultural institutions such as the Jerusalem Symphony Orchestra and the Palestinian National Theatre.

Be a local. Wherever you go.
