A worldwide icon and foundation in the history of Christianity, Judaism and Islam, Jerusalem is a drawing point for pilgrims year on year. Shrouded in history and constantly being reinvented, the Old City continues to unveil even more subterranean sights and archaeological wonders. Make sure to visit the Western Wall and the City of David.
Fast forward a couple of thousand years and explore the contemporary city, where rosy stone walls mirror those of the Old City with more of a modern world charm. The east of the city is where you'll find an array of art galleries and bookshops, with cafés dotted around for watching the world go by.
