Day tour of Western Jerusalem

Jerusalem’s historical and sacred heart is the Old City  , and to a great extent also Mount of Olives .

israel museum tourIf you have covered these parts of Jerusalem, and still have some free time, I would recommend the following: Review the highlights of the Israel Museum  , visit the national memorial of the Holocaust (“Yad Vashem”  ), and later go for a stroll and a lunch break at the main market of Western Jerusalem – Mahane Yehudah Market  . After lunch we could drive through the neighrborhood of the Ultra Orthodox Jews – Mea Shearim  and learn about the diversity of the Jewish religion.
