Israel: Jerusalem – City of Gold

There are many reasons to visit Jerusalem – religion, history, architecture, cuisine, just to name a few. But it’s the City’s antiquity – layer upon layer of civilization – built and destroyed and built again, that renders Jerusalem so challenging and so fascinating. Our exploration of the City reveals its history from a Canaanite village over 5,000 years ago, to an important centre of the Jewish world, the impact of King Herod, the destruction by the Romans, the conquest by Muslim soldiers and its position today as a spiritual centre for Jews, Christians and Muslims.
