Jerusalem is one of the holiest cities on earth. We spent a day in this city that each year, draws hundreds of thousands of religious pilgrims and tourists from all over the world. A city filled with so many different cultures, and defined by the three monotheistic religions, Jerusalem is a truly fascinating place. From the sights and smells you’ll encounter, to the different languages and stunning religious landmarks, Jerusalem is a truly remarkable city.
