Via Dolorosa

Undoubtedly, Via Dolorosa is one of the most visited places in the city, as its importance for Christianity is enormous. Via Dolorosa is a street in the old city of Jerusalem, and is marked by 9 stations where Jesus passed carrying his cross, the other stations are located inside the Church of the Holy Sepulcher. My recommendation is to take the route with a guide, as he explains every detail of the stations and the place.

I visited Jerusalem twice, the first time I took the tour with Abraham Tours and I totally recommend it, it was a visit rich in information and details, and being with a qualified guide made all the difference in our visit.

Wall of Lamentations

The Wailing Wall is also one of the most famous places in Jerusalem, and it has enormous historical importance for Jews, who come from all over the world to pray and place their requests on the wall. It is common to see lots and lots of papers on the wall, as this is how the Jews place their prayer requests on it.

I confess that even though I'm not Jewish, I was thrilled to visit such a special and historic place, don't miss it.

Yad Vashem – Holocaust Museum

This is one of those places you have to visit in Jerusalem, this museum is exciting and should be on your itinerary.

The museum showcases the history of World War II, the Holocaust and the many lives that were lost during that period. On another trip to Europe, I had already visited the Holocaust museum in Berlin, but the one in Jerusalem manages to be even more touching, it is impossible not to get emotional there.

Mount of Olives

The Mount of Olives is another must-see place when visiting Jerusalem.

The site is sacred to both Jews, Christians and Muslims, and is also one of the most visited places in the city. My tip is to visit the place at sunset, the view is wonderful.

Try to go up the hill by taxi or by car, because the climb is really tiring, I was driving, but I decided to walk down the hill to Gethsemane and then I went up again to get the car, it was very tiring, but it was worth it.
