Jerusalem’s 3,000-year-old history will amaze travelers

If you and your family are looking to take a vacation you will never forget, consider traveling to Jerusalem, Israel. This exotic paradise is home to some of the world's most historic monuments – some of which are over 3,000 years old – as well as delicious food and opulent hotels.

Any journey to this destination would not be complete without visiting the Western Wall. Historians have dubbed this site the most cherished place of prayer. It's located at the bottom of the Temple Mount in Old City. Every day, residents of Jerusalem come to sing hymns and pray here. If you do visit the Wall, you should know that men are required to cover their heads and women need to dress modestly out of respect.

The Dome of the Rock should not be missed. This, like the Western Wall, is one of Jerusalem's most revered monuments. Built in the seventh century, the gold Dome can be seen from virtually all areas of the Old City. Historians believe that this is the place where Abraham almost sacrificed his son, Isaac.

After a day of sightseeing, dine at Keyara, a gourmet kosher restaurant in the middle of the city. It was built in the courtyard of the Rehavia windmill complex. Try authentic Israeli fare like chicken livers, roast beef or sea bass. Finish off your meal with halva semifreddo or chocolate mousse.

Of course, when planning your trip here, you'll need to consider where to stay. One accommodation in the center of Jerusalem that is as beautiful as it is luxurious is the five-star Inbal Hotel. Voted one of the top 10 hotels in the Middle East by Conde Nast, here visitors can enjoy the swimming pool, health club and spa and sauna.

During your trip to Jerusalem, why bother trying to navigate the bus routes? Instead, have a chauffeur from Hermes Worldwide take you and your loved ones to your hotel and various sites around the city. Hermes sedan limo service will ensure that you and your family arrive at your destination comfortably and safely.
