Jerusalem, Israel

Sacred to three great monotheistic religions and steeped in history, Jerusalem, Israel's capital is brimming with ancient wonders. A luxury holiday to this fascinating city with Lightfoot Travel promises a truly unique experience. 

Sites of historic and religious importance abound in the Old City, which is divided into four quarters: Armenian, Christian, Jewish and Muslim. For Christians, walking the Via Dolorosa – the Stations of the Cross – is a momentous occasion. The route ends at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, the site of Jesus’s crucifixion. 

The Western Wall is the focal point for Jews, while the Temple Mount, home of the magnificent Dome of the Rock and Al-Aqsa Mosque, is one of the holiest sites for Muslims. 

Outside the Old City, the Mount of Olives houses an impressive collection of churches, the oldest cemetery in the world, and magnificent views over Jerusalem. Don’t miss the New City, home to the Israel Museum and Dead Sea Scrolls, the Holocaust memorial (Yad Vashem) and the atmospheric food market, Mahane Yahuda.
