Questions And Answers

You asked, we answered!

 

Question

What are the major sites we should see if we only have one day in the Old City?

 

Answer

You can divide your day into Old and New Jerusalem:

Old Jerusalem – the main sites: Mount Zion, the Mount of Olives, the Western Wall, the Archeological Gardens, the Jewish Quarter and Cardo, the Via Dolorosa, the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, the Temple Mount,  the City of David and the Arab markets.  Pick as many as you can, but be aware that the City of David takes several hours. There is a wonderful Western Wall Tunnel Tour that should be reserved in advanced: see  HYPERLINK “http://english.thekotel.org/” http://english.thekotel.org/

The Night Spectacular – if you have an evening in Jerusalem – is fantastic.  HYPERLINK “http://www.towerofdavid.org.il” www.towerofdavid.org.il for details.

 

New Jerusalem – Four main sites: the Yad Vashem Holocaust Museum, the Jewish Market (Mahane Yehuda), the Israel Museum, and Mount Herzl.

 

 

Question

What is the weather like in June?

 

Answer

It is quite warm in Israel from June through the beginning of October. Temperatures can get up to 32 in Jerusalem and even higher in the desert areas. Jerusalem and the Western Negev cool off at night, however! Sometimes it is cooler in Tel Aviv than in Jerusalem, but still hot and sticky. And it stays that way all day!

 

Question

How should I get around in Jerusalem?

 

Answer

It is wise to pick a hotel inside the city center or the Old City so that you can walk almost everywhere. When you want to go to the Jewish market, or to the Holocaust Museum, you can take the Light Rail. Be sure and buy your ticket in advance, however!! Otherwise you could be rather rudely thrown off the train!
