Travel tips for Jerusalem trips

What are some of the best spots to visit in Jerusalem?

Jerusalem is one of the trending travel destinations for 2023, and Jerusalem travel packages are the best way to explore the Holy City’s ancient history. Steeped in thousands of years of tradition, Jerusalem surprises and delights visitors with its contemporary culture, delicious food, and stunning landscapes. Here are three of the best spots to see when you visit Jerusalem.

  • Western Wall. Jerusalem tours aren’t complete without a visit to the Western Wall, also known as the Wailing Wall. This site in Old Jerusalem is divided into two parts: one for men and one for women. You’ll find many people (locals and tourists) at the site, praying at the wall or just sitting nearby and taking it in. Even if you don’t practice Judaism, you can still appreciate this site and take a moment for prayer or reflection.
  • Dome of the Rock. There’s no better vantage point for spectacular views of the Old City than the gold-plated Dome of the Rock atop the Mount of Olives. It’s the highlight for many travelers on Jerusalem trips. The dome is built over a sacred stone marking where the Prophet Muhammed ascended to heaven and where Abraham prepared to sacrifice his son. Only Muslims can enter the temple, but everyone can enjoy the exterior views. Have your camera ready: This is one of the most photographed sites in the world.
  • King David’s Tomb. Situated on Mount Zion, just outside Jerusalem’s Old City Walls, King David’s Tomb is a sacred site for Jews, Christians, and Muslims. The tomb stands on the first floor of a building that served as a mosque for hundreds of years. On the second floor is the Upper Room that hosted the Last Supper. King David’s Tomb is one of the most popular sites to visit on tours to Jerusalem.

When is the best time to visit Jerusalem?

April, May, October, and November. You’ll find the weather milder and the crowds thinner during these shoulder seasons. Flights and hotel accommodations cost less during these months, too. Unless you’re coming to participate in the celebrations, you might want to avoid Jewish holidays, such as Passover. In addition to more crowded conditions, some religious sites will be closed for services, and public transportation doesn’t run. Our tours to Jerusalem will get you there during these less hectic months.

December-March. This is the low season to visit Jerusalem, and you can expect the weather to be unpredictable. The wet season is in full swing by December (don’t forget your raincoat), and even snow occasionally falls. The upside is fewer tourists, lower travel costs, and the country’s delicious citrus fruits at their peak. If you’re looking for group trips to Jerusalem during the low season, check out our Israel Adventure: Tel Aviv, the Dead Sea & Jerusalem tour.

What are some dining tips for Jerusalem tours?

Jerusalem’s food scene, while predominantly kosher (restaurants serve either meat or dairy, but not both), appeals to all tastes. The melting pot of cultures, including Middle Eastern and Mediterranean, that make up Jerusalem provide an international mix of cuisines. You’ll want to try some of these local favorites when visiting Jerusalem.

  • Falafel. Israel’s most popular fast food, falafel, can be found in kiosks and stalls throughout Jerusalem. Falafel balls consist of chickpeas, blended with herbs and spices, and deep-fried to a crisp consistency. Though they can be served in a bowl, you’ll want yours in a pita if you’re on the go.
  • Shakshuka. One of the most popular dishes in Jerusalem, this hearty Mediterranean dish is usually served for breakfast or brunch. Poached eggs top a base of tomato and pepper sauce, flavored with chili flakes and cumin. A warm piece of pita makes a delicious dipping tool.
  • Hummus. You may be accustomed to eating hummus as a condiment, but it’s eaten as a main course in Israel. Order hummus when visiting Jerusalem and you’ll understand why. In the Holy City, you’ll find an endless variety of this mixture of mashed chickpeas, tahini, lemon juice, olive oil, salt, and garlic. This is a dipping dish best enjoyed with pita bread.
  • Israeli breakfast plate. To start your day with a full stomach, look no further than this famous dish served in every café. Delicious and healthy, Israeli breakfasts typically include a salad, omelet, breads, and plates of olives, cheeses, and fish. A glass of orange juice and a cappuccino helps wash it all down.

What should I pack for a trip to visit Jerusalem?

Group tours to Jerusalem are always exhilarating, but having the right stuff in your suitcase makes every trip better. Israel experiences high temperatures, so a hat, sunglasses, sunscreen, and light layers will help protect you from the sun. If you’re traveling between October and April, bring a warmer layer for when temperatures dip in the evenings.

Even when it’s hot out, it’s best to respect the more conservative customs during travel to Jerusalem by covering your shoulders and knees. We recommend packing lightweight, loose-fitting clothing that can be easily layered, as well as a light jacket or rainwear. Please note that temperatures will dip with changes in elevation throughout your tour. If you plan to visit a high-end restaurant or attend a special performance on trips to Jerusalem, you may want to pack a dressier outfit. And get ready to explore all the city has to offer on Jerusalem tour packages by packing a sturdy pair of walking shoes or sneakers.

Toss a small bottle of hand sanitizer and tissues in your day bag for Jerusalem tours, just in case; you’ll be happy you have them if you come upon a public restroom where other facilities aren’t available.
