The Modern City
DAY TOUR IN JERUSALEM
Mount Scopus' hilltop location provides the city's best lookout for seeing the entire city – the old and new city and the Mount of Olives. It is situated next to the Mt. Scopus campuses of the Hebrew University and Hadassah Hospital. At dusk, on a full moon, you can see the sun setting over Jerusalem and the moon rising over the Judean Desert at the same time.
The Israel Museum is Israel's most prolific museum, and home to the Dead Sea Scrolls. The museum has remarkable exhibits of archaeology, Jewish life and art, European art, contemporary Israeli art and an open-air model of Jerusalem in the Second Temple period.
Mount Herzl is Israel's National Military Cemetery and is the final resting place of Israel's leaders. At the peak of the mountain lies the grave of Theodor Herzl, the founding father of modern Zionism.
Yad VaShem is the Jewish National Memorial to the six million Jewish victims of the Holocaust. Situated at the bottom of Mount Herzl (also known as Memorial Mountain), the complex includes the new Historical Museum, the Avenue of the Righteous among the Nations, and the Children's Memorial.
The Knesset and the National District is where the three branches of authority are situated – the Parliament of Israel (Knesset), the Supreme Court and the Ministerial Offices. We will visit the Rose Garden and the famous Menorah Statue overlooking the Knesset, and learn about Israel's democracy and politics.
The Machaneh Yehuda Market is an open-air market rife with the hustle and bustle of the wide spectrum of Israel's ethnicities, where East meets West. We will enjoy the sights, smells, sounds, and most importantly tastes of this vibrant area where both tourists and locals come to shop.
