In a unique sense Jerusalem belongs to the world! Jerusalem welcomes visitors to come and see it’s many exciting rare treasures, and to walk around the city to experience its biblical and historical sites that most of us have only read about.
Known as the city with a heart of gold, Jerusalem has been the melting pot for civilization for 3000 years. The city has survived invading armies of past civilizations, wars and different rulers and yet has always emerged still stronger to embody the ambitions of nations.
Today modern Jerusalem is a bustling capital where elegant boutiques and shopping centres contrast with traditional bazaars and markets Cafes and restaurants. The larger part of the city, including the centre with its shopping and leisure districts, is vibrant, Jewish West Jerusalem. These neighbourhoods are characterised by broad avenues, busy pedestrianised streets and squares, cafes, restaurants and pockets of vibrant nightlife. The Mamilla Broadwalk, leading to the Old City, is Israel’s newest and most beautiful outdoor shopping mall, lined with designer boutiques and cafes.
Not to be missed during your visit are the Western Wall also known as the Wailing Wall, Dome of the Rock, the Church of Holy Sepulchre, and theVia Dolorosa. These are just a few of the places to marvel at the religious significance of this city. Walk the steps of Jesus, the Hebrew ancient armies, King Herod, and the Salach Al-Dean. Savour these, and you begin to understand why Jerusalem has become the bedrock of civilization. Other attractions in Jerusalem include the Israel Museum, Yad Vashem, the Houses of Parliament, Mount Zion, the tomb of King David, Mary’s tomb, many ancient Synagogues, and Mini Israel. At the end of a long day sightseeing wander up to Mount Scopus and enjoy the panoramic view of the golden city at dusk! An experience not to be missed.
I just had to write to say what an experience it was visiting Jerusalem. It was like going back in time. The history, the culture, the religious sites were amazing. We will certainly be going back to see more of Israel. And of course we will be calling you personally book with Superstar Holidays as you were more than helpful!!” Regards, Mary and John Grass, Manchester.
Please pass my thanks on to Ancilla for arranging our holiday to Israel. The combination of Jerusalem and Eilat worked perfectly. Stopping off at the Dead Sea to cover ourselves in mud was not something I would have thought of, but I am glad we did it. Fabulous experience. The whole trip has made us determined to return to Israel and you can be assured we will be booking with Superstar.” Yours sincerely, Simon and Grace Bird.
