TRAVEL IN JERUSALEM

Biblical mythologies and ancient landmarks sit cradled between the Judaean Mountains in the history shrouded city of Jerusalem. Home to more than 70 mosques, 150 churches, and 1200 synagogues, it is a place where religious friction, political turmoil and border disputes are part of everyday life. Nevertheless, travellers flock to this spiritual epicentre of the world to understand its many mysteries and admire its astounding architectural sites and religious monuments. It is impossible to overstate the historical significance of the landmarks found here, home to one of the oldest examples of Islamic architecture, Dome of the Rock, as well as the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, the spot at which Jesus was supposedly crucified and resurrected, and where a shrine now stands around his empty tomb. Between religious sites there are many museums in Jerusalem worth dedicating your travel hours to. Dabble in politics at Menachem Begin Heritage Center, admire art and archeology at the Israel Museum, and gain an understanding of the life of Jewish people living in Italy at Nahon Museum of Italian Jewish Art. For those eager to see the city alive to the tune of a special event try timing your trip with Passover, Rosh Hashana or Purim. Most of these festivals are of Jewish origin but are celebrated widely across Israel, and boast the hallmarks of family time and the sharing of an elaborate meal. Jachnun pastries, falafels, hummus, shnitzel, and salads - it will not be hard to feel at home and indulged by the incredible Jerusalem food scene.
