Jerusalem Vacations

Jerusalem is sacred to more than half of the world's population. It is the place where religion, culture, and the arts merge into a metropolis that is a feast for both the spirit and the human senses. Whether you are interested in history, religion, food, or just immersing yourself in the culture, a Jerusalem vacation will become a jewel in your travel crown.

Major Attractions

No trip to Jerusalem is complete without a visit to the holy sites – The Temple Mount (including the Dome of the Rock and Al-Aqsa Mosque), Western Wall, and Church of the Holy Sepulchre, among many others. Outside of the holy sites, the Old City offers several quarters, including the Christian Quarter, the Jewish Quarter, the Muslim Quarter, and the Armenian Quarter, each offering their own cultural markets, restaurants, and shops. But it's the open-air Mahane Yehuda Market – "the Shuk" -- that is truly a sight to behold. At this bustling market in the city center you can buy produce, spices, pastries, breads, scarves, and many other items while mingling with a local crowd. While there, try some kanafeh, a sweet cheese pastry, or shawarma, which are shavings of meat that have been roasted on a spit, served on a plate or as a sandwich.

Festivals and Events

Jerusalem is a special place to visit for several religious holidays, depending on your preference. But the entire city seems to participate in Purim, a Jewish holiday that spawns parties and carnivals around the city. Often compared to Halloween and Mardi Gras, Purim takes place in early March. For a non-religious event, check out the increasingly popular International Film Festival in July. Located at Jerusalem Cinémathèque, the festival features films from around the world.

Travelocity offers a diverse selection of Jerusalem vacation packages with the best hotels in Jerusalem. And with savings up to $537 by booking your flight and hotel together as a Jerusalem vacation package, you can afford an extra kebab at the Shuk.
