Jerusalem — The spiritual home of the world’s three major religions will enchant even the most secular of visitors with its rich history, ashen stone buildings, delectable cuisine and abundant sacred landmarks. Although the past few years have been rather turbulent for the Holy City (with much of the flare-ups concentrated in East Jerusalem), for now the situation is relatively calm in the main tourism areas, making it an ideal time to visit.

Why Go

For the awe-inspiring number of religious and historical sites, and the bustling, cosmopolitan make-up of the city.
