The holy city of Jerusalem is located on an elevated plateau in central Israel, just west of the Dead Sea. Jerusalem, which is also one of the oldest cities in the world, has been a place of pilgrimage, worship, and awe for those of Christian, Jewish, and Islamic faith since biblical times.
There is much to see and do in Jerusalem; some of the stops you can make include visiting what is known as the Old City, which was settled in the 4th millennium BCE, as well as visiting the Church of the Holy Sepulchre and the biblical zoo. And if you book a car rental in Jerusalem, all of the holy and historical destinations will be right at your fingertips.
The center of Jerusalem is about a forty-minute drive from the Ben Gurion Airport by bus shuttle or taxi. You can find Calvary minutes from Jerusalem's walls, which is the site where it is believed Jesus was crucified. After visiting Jerusalem and Calvary, you might want to visit Bethlehem, located about 50 miles south of Jerusalem, as it is considered the holy birthplace of Jesus. Afterwards, you might want to stop and visit one of the local villages (called a 'moshav') to get a feel for how the residents around Jerusalem live.
Shoresh is a family-friendly village situated on top of the Judean Mountains, and is surrounded by nature, hiking trails, and excellent views of almost all of Israel. Securing a Jerusalem rental car will allow you to see Bethlehem, Shoresh, and the Judean Mountains all in the same day.
