Jerusalem holds high significance for three major religions (Islam, Christianity and Judaism) and as a result offers a multitude of historical attractions to interest both pilgrims and secular tourists. The walled Old City, with its narrow cobble-stoned alleyways, beautiful bell towers, and charming hidden courtyards, is the epicentre of Jerusalem. Despite it’s small size, the Old City is home to a plethora of ancient sacred sites. These include the Garden of Gethsemane; the Western Wall; and the Dome of the Rock from which Muhammad is said to have ascended to heaven. Step out of the Old City and you will find yourself thrust back into the twenty-first century. All of these historical sites contrast to make Jerusalem a fascinating and inspiring travel destination.
