  Dear ,

As we embark on yet another Summer Tourist season, Jerusalem offers you a wealth of activities and attractions well worth the visit. The number of festivals taking place is truly staggering, and the investments in infrastructures promoted by the Jerusalem Municipality manifest themselves in more new sites than can be afforded in the phase of a single stay.

Clearly, this cradle of Western Civilization is swiftly becoming so much more than a focus-point for pilgrimages; it is – instead – developing into a tourism capital with more vibrant energy and points of interest than many other major cities could ever hope to have.

So, for a visit that delights the senses and provides a wealth of experiences that resembles a veritable amusement park of history, sensation and culture, this Summer, Jerusalem is clearly the place to be.

Museum: Second Temple Model And Visitor’s Center




The Model
Jerusalem, at its largest, was impressive: towards the end of the
Second Temple Period, more than 200,000 inhabitants populated a city the size of the current Old City, dominated by the 35-acre Holy Temple. Visitors can once again appreciate the magnificence of the ancient capital at the Holyland Model, soon to be reopened at the Israel
Museum amidst a dazzling new visitor’s center.

Focus on: City of David




Kings and Prophets
A walk through the tunnels and archeological finds at the City of David is a walk through the sources of History of Western Civilization. The stones here truly reverberate with the spirits of a period, during which
the Jewish Nation was finally united under one king, and then made ready for its history of exile to the Diaspora.

Tours: Springs in Jerusalem and the Vicinity




Wet Summer in the City
To truly appreciate water, one must be in the desert, or in the Hills of Jerusalem on a hot, summer’s day, when diving into an ice-cold pool
fed by clear spring water is as close as one can get to the true embodiment of an advertising commercial.

The Road to Jerusalem




The Road to Jerusalem
The Judean Hills region is extremely rich in attractions and amenities. Locations such as the Mini-Israel miniature park, the Latrun Armored Corps Museum, the Latrun Monastery and the Biblical Village at
Yad Ha-Shmona are what make the road to Jerusalem more than just another highway.
