Jerusalem! This word, holy for every Jew, Christian and Muslim, is much more than simply the name of a city. It is the symbol of the entire Judeo-Christian civilization and the center of the world according to medieval cartographers. Jerusalem became the center of tourism centuries before the concept of tourism even emerged, with the first Jewish pilgrims who would go to pray at the Temple, and later with Christian and Muslim pilgrims from all over the world. Millions of people visit Jerusalem today, and all of them return with memories that will last a lifetime.
If you are going to visit Jerusalem, you probably already heard of its most important sights: the Western Wall, center of the Jewish religion; the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, built on the place where Jesus was buried and where he resurrected; the Dome of the Rock and the Al Aqsa Mosque. But did you know that Jerusalem has much more than just that? Have you ever heard of the tunnels than run beneath the city since pre-Christian times and are available for a visit today? And there is a lot to see in modern Jerusalem, too, from the Israel Museum to the Knesset and the Supreme Court of Israel, which are available for visits.
The best way to visit Israel is with a guided tour, to ensure that you see the best of the city during the time of your stay in Israel.

Jerusalem has many hidden gems that not even locals all know, so if you want to explore the most during the visit, we recommend booking one of our guided tours. Our Jerusalem Walking Tour is a good start for your Jerusalem vacation, but if you want something more exquisite, this can also be easily arranged. Genesis Boutique Travel does private Jerusalem tours too, and if you have some specific location in mind that you would like to visit but which is not included in traditional tourist itineraries, we can also include it, too.
An important advantage of Jerusalem is its mild climate: even in July, thanks to the Judaean Mountains that surround Jerusalem, the air in the Israeli capital is not as hot as in other cities, including Tel Aviv and the cities around it. This means that if you want to visit Jerusalem, every season is a good season. Nonetheless, to avoid overbooking and paying extra for lodging, we recommend that you book your Jerusalem accommodation in advance. The easiest way to do it is with Genesis Boutique Travel.
