“The Machane Yehuda Market is always an exciting place to go. It’s much more than fresh fruit and vegetables. There’s also cheese, wine, halva, exotic spices, coffee, baked goods and ethnic dishes. In fact, the fare mirrors the city’s residents, who hail from a hodgepodge of countries. This is the place to feel the people, food and customs of Jerusalem. Located adjacent to the Machane Yehuda Market you can visit the Nachlaot neighborhood, past old-style buildings with hidden courtyards. The neighborhood has a bohemian ring to it and boasts a mixed population of ultra-Orthodox and artsy folk. Reach via busses: 74,75,78”
“The Israel Museum is the country's flagship museum and largest cultural institution. Home to one of the finest and most comprehensive collections of art and Holy Land antiquities in the world, the museum's collections include nearly 500,000 objects, dating from prehistory to today. The 20-acre Israel Museum campus sprawls across the lip of central Jerusalem's Valley of the Cross, within sight of both the Knesset and the suburb of Rechavia so we would recommend at least half a day here. The Dead Sea Scrolls are also a must! We also recommend booking in advance to avoid long queues. The museum is a 35 minute walk from our house or 20 minutes by public transport. Admission is 54 shekels.”
“The old city of Jerusalem is but a 18-minuets walk from the apartment! Inside the Old City walls you can find the Western Wall, Temple Mount, Dome of the Rock (Al-Aqsa Mosque), Church of the Holy Sepulcher, Hurva Synagogue and Via Dolorosa, among others. Take your time walking from site to site by getting lost in the alleyways of the shuk, taking in all the shops selling souvenirs, pottery, olive-wood mementos, clothing and food. Each quarter of the Old City – Armenian, Jewish, Christian, Muslim – has its own ambiance and vibe. As there’s a story behind practically every stone of the Old City, this is the place to get familiar with history, theology and archaeology.”
“A well-established promenade, full of nature, a shopping center at the end and a center of restaurants and entertainment for the whole family. A walking and cycling route, along Jerusalem to Ein Yael, where you will meet a lot of nature, and you will arrive at the zoo.”
“The Western Wall, or “Wailing Wall”, is the most religious site in the world for the Jewish people. Located in the Old City of Jerusalem, it is the western support wall of the Temple Mount”
“Yad Vashem is Israel’s living memorial to the millions murdered in the Holocaust. The exhibits include authentic film footage, videos of personal interviews with survivors, historical documents, artifacts, personal items, memorial structures, gardens and commemorative installations.
