  • West Jerusalem
  • Most of Jerusalem's must-see historic sites are concentrated in and around the Old City. This is the place to step back into Christian, Jewish and Muslim history and to uncover the layers of Jerusalem through archaeological finds, museums and even cemeteries. To the east of the Old City, the Kidron Valley and the Mount of Olives will take you back to biblical times--this is where King David and Jesus walked and prophets are buried. The City of David, just to the south of the Old City,is one of Israel's largest national archeological parks and will give you a picture of what Jerusalem looked like all the way back to Canaanite times. Lots of walking and hills involved in discovering all these historic sites, so come prepared with strong shoes, hat and water.
