Jerusalem is the spiritual center for the Jewish people for millenniums. In this tour, we shall focus on the ancient Tel of Jerusalem, the City of David, which was the scene for important biblical accounts. We won't skip the Jewish Quarter visiting important sites like the Herodian Mansions. Then onto Modern Jerusalem paying our respects to the victims of the Holocaust at Yad Vashem Museum.
