The newly crowned (as per Donald Trump) capital of Israel is seeped in history, intrigue, romance, and mystery and is one of the oldest cities in the world. Before becoming a listed UNESCO Heritage Site in the 1980s, this incredibly holy city has been completely destroyed twice, captured and recaptured some 44 times, had to defend itself from attack more than 52 times and has been plagued some 23 times – and still, the city stands proud, although the Old City has been listed on the danger list for World Heritage. Here are my top things to see and do in Jerusalem.
1. The Old City
is only a quaint 1km in size, but by far one of the most important religious sites in the world. With an intense history and spiritual meaning for many religions, the city is an intoxicating blend of history, spirituality, politics, romance and awe inspiring scenes.
