A Vacation in Jerusalem—How To Plan the Perfect Holiday?
The different possibilities for a vacation in Jerusalem are too numerous to mention. The city of Jerusalem, 4,000 years old, offers visitors endless possibilities for entertainment, touring, and accommodations, and all you need to do is try to decide in advance what type of vacation you would like to have. You can combine a relaxing, pampering vacation with an exciting holiday that includes many attractions. Either way, the major advantage is that Jerusalem is not going anywhere, and you are welcome to go back and explore it again and again, each time in a different way.
First, the Hotel
Before we present you with the various entertainment and touring options in the mysterious and enchanted city of Jerusalem, it’s important to start with your hotel; the basis for your vacation and the starting point for your activities. Since Jerusalem is an especially popular destination for tourists from all over the world and from every race and religion, the supply of hotels is large and varied.
Jerusalem has a number of leading hotel chains, so every visitor and tourist can easily find a hotel that meets his/her standards:
• Location: Jerusalem’s hotels are located in various tourist areas. Their strategic proximity to these areas is a significant parameter in choosing a hotel.
• Budget and level: Your choice of a hotel should suit your budget. Well-known chains such as the Dan Hotels offer a range of prices for different hotels.
• Type of vacation: The type of hotel should match the style of your vacation. If you have chosen a relaxing vacation, choose a hotel hidden away from the hubbub of the city, offering spa facilities and spectacular views. If you have chosen a dynamic, contemporary holiday, choose a modern and vibrant hotel. For example, a vacation in Jerusalem at the Dan Hotels lets you choose the surprising and colorful Dan Boutique Jerusalem or the Dan Jerusalem Hotel, located on the slopes of Mount Scopus, a pleasant and breathtaking spot.
And Now, Your Vacation
Jerusalem, as a city that combines tradition and history with innovation and color, allows visitors to explore it in any way they choose. Lovers of culture and history will find the sites in the Old City especially attractive and will enjoy wandering around its alleyways, viewing its archaeological finds and exhibits of historical architecture, including the King David Hotel, located near the Old City. They can also visit churches, mosques, graves, citadels, and other important and holy tourist sites.
Those who enjoy tours will find Jerusalem to be full of song and story. The many professional tour guides help tourists get to know Jerusalem from various angles, starting with Christian tours and “Selichot tours” (special prayers preceding Yom Kippur) through spectacular lookout points, to spiritual night tours. Lovers of fashion, art, culinary pleasures and shopping will be pleased to discover that Jerusalem is full of modern tourist attractions and shopping centers. In recent years, the colorful Machaneh Yehuda market has become an excellent culinary center that combines a medley of flavors, aromas, and styles. The nightlife scene has also developed in Jerusalem, and the bars, pubs, and nightclubs are hopping, even in the wee hours of the morning.
In short, a holiday in Jerusalem has many different options. Find a vacation that meets your needs and your personality and enjoy all the benefits that Jerusalem has to offer.
