For a tiny country, Israel can be defined by so many words. Tel Aviv is known for its incredible beaches, nightlife and thriving art and food scene. It’s usually the entry point for international visitors before they explore the country. But it is the holy city of Jerusalem where you need to dedicate your time the most.
Jerusalem is one of the oldest cities and is considered by many to be one of the holiest places in the world! It is an important site for the three largest monotheistic religions: Judaism ✡️, Islam ☪️ and Christianity ✝️.
The old city is also divided into four different quarters and exploring here can be quite overwhelming at times, so make sure you book a tour for a better understanding. Then look for the best hummus and falafel and don’t miss the sweets in the Muslim quarter. So delicious. And if you jump on a local bus, you can be in the city of Bethlehem in Palestine in less than 30 minutes.
