Things to do in Jerusalem

People around the world know Jerusalem as the Holy City because it has some of the oldest and most religious sites in the world. Even if the idea of visiting mosques and other religious sites doesn't interest you, you can easily find other things to do in Jerusalem that will make you glad you chose this destination.

Look for Jerusalem tours taking you to some of the top holy sites. While some visitors grab a map and take a tour on their own, most of those travelers feel confused, and some even find they cannot locate the sites they want. By booking a tour, you can reach all of those sites and learn more from your local tour guide.

When looking at Jerusalem activities, consider stopping by the Israel Museum. Well-known throughout the world for its abundance of artifacts, this museum will introduce you to the history of the region and the controversy surrounding the area. You can also visit the Yad Vashem Holocaust Memorial, which many call one of the best memorials of its type in the world. Unlike other museums, which are only indoors, this museum has multiple areas where you can learn more about how the Holocaust affected Jewish people. Not only does it have an indoor museum, but it also has outdoor spaces and gardens.

As a tourist, you should also think about taking Jerusalem excursions and tours of the Old City of Jerusalem. This area marks the oldest part of the city, and while there aren't many attractions here, you can see the famous wall. Even if you decide to skip the wall tour, you can still view other historic spots. Other must see places include the Western Wall Tunnels and Hezekiah's Tunnels. These tunnels run underneath the city, giving you a look at how people once worshipped.

While you'll find hundreds of things to do and attractions in Jerusalem, make sure you visit the Wailing Wall before you leave. Hundreds of local worshipers come here every day to pray, and you can say your own prayers, too. When visiting the House of the Holiness, use Expedia to help you plan your visit.
