Few places in the world boast such a long history and such a rich multiethnic culture as Jerusalem, a city sacred to Jews, Muslims, and Christians.

Go for a jaunt from Jerusalem to Arad to see Masada Fortress about 1h 05 min away. The adventure continues: delve into the distant past at Western Wall, take in the spiritual surroundings of The Garden Tomb, make a trip to Jaffa Gate (Bab al-Khalil), and admire the landmark architecture of Church of the Holy Sepulchre.
