Jerusalem Holidays

Western Wall Jerusalem

Holidays in Jerusalem

Jerusalem is a fascinating holiday destination: A city with sites of great spiritual importance to Christians, Jews and Muslims, with ancient relics of earlier eras and modern cultural institutions vying for space in a chaotic yet magical atmosphere only found in the Eternal City.

Colourful markets, dozens of museums, interactive attractions for children, diverse dining opportunities - it seems as though around every corner in Jerusalem there’s something else to discover, and there’s plenty to interest the whole family.

We offer a range of hotels in Jerusalem from boutique properties to deluxe hotels and can combine these with a number of itineraries to create a bespoke Jerusalem experience for you. Visit the city as part of a twin centre (Tel Aviv makes a popular twin), on its own or on our guided tour of Israel.

Jerusalem consists of the Old City and the New City lying beyond its walls. The Old City is where many of Jerusalem’s key historic and religious sites are located, and is divided into 4 quarters - the Jewish, Armenian, Muslim and Christian.

Most important of the Christian sites in Jerusalem is the Via Dolorosa, which follows the footsteps of Jesus’ final path and according to tradition starts at the courthouse and ends at Golgotha Hill, the crucifixion site. Many churches and commemorative sites were built along the Via in Byzantine times, the most significant remaining of these being the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. Today the Church houses relics of great significance to Christians including the anointing stone (where Jesus was laid before his burial) and Jesus’ grave itself, and attracts pilgrims to Jerusalem from all over the world.

Other key sites to the Christian faith located in and around Jerusalem are Dormition Abbey, located on Mount Zion and believed to be built on the site where Mary spent her last night; Church of the Ascension and Gethsemane.

In the centre of the Old City, near the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, are the Western Wall and the Dome of the Rock. The Western Wall is a holy site for the Jews, and is visited by millions of worshippers every year. The Dome of the Rock is a shrine for Islam’s third most holy site - the spot from where Mohammed ascended to heaven. Both sites have significance to the other religions as well, and are unmissable on any visit to Jerusalem.

Climate in Jerusalem

Jerusalem is warm during summer and mildly cold during winter, with temperatures rarely dropping below 10 degrees celsius during that day - although snow in Jerusalem is not unheard of. Located next to a desert, Jerusalem also sees a significant drop in temperatures at night.

Best Time to go

Spring to autumn is the best time to visit Jerusalem. Summer can get very hot, so shoulder seasons are best for those who want to do a lot of sightseeing on foot.
