The Old City of Jerusalem
— "Must-See" Attractions

The Old City of Jerusalem (surrounded by a wall and divided into four quarters: Jewish, Armenian, Christian and Muslim) is a "must-see" when visiting Israel — it certainly was the highlight of my visit. Jerusalem (Israel's capital and largest city) plays an important role in Judaism, Christianity and Islam. "Must-see" Jerusalem attractions include:

Wailing Wall (Western Wall)
For a truly spiritual experience, be sure to visit the Wailing Wall — the holiest of Jewish sites. For centuries, it's been the gathering place for Jews from around the world who have come to pray. Millions of prayers and messages, written on tiny pieces of paper, are stuck in the cracks of the wall from people of all religions who have visited there. Wonder if my note is still there after all these years? In keeping with Orthodox Jewish tradition, men and women each have their own section. Be sure to dress appropriately.

Dome of the Rock
The Dome of the Rock is located on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, near the Wailing Wall (top right). Built between 688-91 AD, the Muslin shrine is the oldest Islamic monument. Once made of gold, the dome is now covered with gold leaf. The golden dome can be seen from across the city.

Last Supper Room
Visit the The Last Supper Room — the 14th-century second-story room where Jesus shared the Last Supper with his disciples. It is located directly above the Tomb of David, a Jewish holy site on Mount Zion.

Via Dolorosa (Stations of the Cross)
Walk along the Via Dolorosa (Stations of the Cross) — the historic route is marked by 14 stations, starting at the Lions' (St Stephens) Gate in the Muslim Quarter and ending at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in the Christian Quarter.

Memorials & Museums
Jerusalem is home to many fine museums — Yad Vashem Memorial and Holocaust Museum and The Israel Museum are not to be missed!


Gan HaShlosha National Park — Sachne
Be sure to visit Sachne, located near Beit She'an in northern Israel (between Jerusalem and Nazareth). Famous for its hot springs and beautiful waterfalls, the National Park is built on a spring with naturally heated water — it's no surprise that Sachne is a popular swimming destination with the locals.
