1. Visit the Western Wall
A visit to one of Judaism's holiest site is one of the best things to do in Jerusalem. Built by Herod about 2,000 years ago, this supporting wall is a perfect place to see all sorts of people at prayer – it's a tradition to write your personal prayer on a paper and put it in the wall, precisely in the spaces between the large Herodian stones. The wall is segregated between males and females – and ladies, you must cover your head.
