Visiting Jerusalem from Tel Aviv

4 67 Reviews | Add your review

As one of the world’s oldest cities and an important spiritual center of Judaism, Christianity and Islam, Jerusalem is an undisputed highlight for visitors to Israel. At just an hour away, Tel Aviv is a popular starting point for day and multi-day tours to Jerusalem.

Israel’s largest city and designated capital is teeming with sights of historic and religious significance, so take in the highlights on a day tour to Jerusalem and Bethlehem, following in the footsteps of Jesus in the city where he lived and died. Visit the Church of All Nations, the Pool of Bethesda and St Anne Church; walk from the iconic Mount of Olives to the start of the Via Dolorosa pilgrimage route; or combine a tour of the Old City of Jerusalem with a visit to the scenes of the Nativity in nearby Bethlehem or a soak in the salty waters of the Dead Sea.

Other highlights of the capital are the City of David’s Jerusalem Archaeological Park, home to the Tomb of King David and the Hall of the Last Supper; the landmark Dome of the Rock at the Temple Mount Esplanade, renowned as the point where heaven meets earth; and the holy Western Wall (Wailing Wall). For a special trip, spend Palm Sunday in Jerusalem, celebrating the holy day by joining the procession along the Via Dolorosa pilgrimage route and attending mass on the Mount of Olives.

With so many sights to cover, you might find there’s too much to cram into a single day tour, so consider a two-, four- or five-day tour from Tel Aviv. These combine the highlights of Jerusalem with visits to Bethlehem, Masada and the Dead Sea, while a Best of Israel tour covers the country’s top attractions, such as Nazareth, Jericho and Rosh Hanikra.
