  • Jerusalem is full of spots where you can find romantic things to do. In a city that has so many ancient nooks and crannies and so many places with their own romantic history, it's just a matter of finding the perfect one for your intimate getaway. Our number one top pick for romantic things to do would have to be a stroll through the beautiful pedestrian-only neighborhood of Yemin Moshe. In this quiet, secluded area where every alleyway is bordered with stunning crimson, yellow and orange bougainvillea and the 19th century stone houses with their old wooden doors and brass knockers face the walls of the Old City, the two of you will have a chance to drink in the atmosphere of old Jerusalem--and it's all just a few minutes walk from the major hotels. Not too far away in the jazzy Mamilla mall, is a romantic experience of another kind. Get away from all the commercialism and step up to the Mamilla Cafe on the rooftop of the Mamilla Hotel. What's more romantic than a beautiful panoramic view over the Old City and some of its most famous landmarks, like the Tower of David? Staff here will generally pick up on your romantic vibe and won't badger you at all. Our number three pick for romantic things to do in Jerusalem is to book a couples massage and spa treatment at the King David Hotel. The classy, old-fashioned elegance of the King David never goes out of style and you'll emerge feeling mellow and ready to spoil each other. Head over to H.Stern, one of Israel's leading jewelers where you'll find stunning contemporary designer pieces to please your significant other. A walk through the Old City will bring the two of you to the quiet garden cafe of the Austrian Hospice where you can share a piece of the best apple strudel in town served on a table made of exquisite Armenian tiles. A popular romantic spot for local couples is the Wohl Rose Garden. Here you'll find secluded benches scattered amongst the rose trellises and the rolling green gardens, with a view over the Knesset. At the southern end of town, don't miss walking on the Haas/Sherover Promenade at twilight--take in the magical view of the illuminated Old City walls below. One of the funkiest romantic spots in downtown Jerusalem is the hard-to-find Tmol Shilshom Cafe. Not far from Zion Square, you'll find an intimate place where tables are set between stone arches and book-filled nooks and some of the best chocolate and coffee drinks are served. If your definition of romantic is to get out of town, then you can't do better than to make your way down to the lowest place on earth to declare your undying love. The Dead Sea is just 40 minutes away and you can cover each other with the mineral-rich mud on the edges of the Sea and float together in the water that won't allow you to sink.
