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.
Start off your visit on the 27th (Thu): contemplate the long history of Mt of Olives, explore the ancient world of Western Wall, then shop like a local with Mamilla Mall, then admire the landmark architecture of Church of the Holy Sepulchre, and finally wander the streets of Ben Yehuda Street. Here are some ideas for day two: see the interesting displays at Israel Museum, take an in-depth tour of Yad Vashem - The World Holocaust Remembrance Center, then wander the streets of Old City of Jerusalem, and finally contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Church of All Nations (Basilica of the Agony).
