Jerusalem is a perfect blend of old and new. At it’s heart is the Old City, which is surrounded by a wall and divided into four quarters - Jewish, Armenian, Christian, and Muslim. Apart from the holy places throughout the Old City, there are several charming sites that are well worth visiting. There is the wonderful market, where you can buy Armenian-style decorated ceramics and from the promenade along the tops of the Old City walls you can look out over the Old and New City. Among the more modern sites in the New City are the the Israel Museum, the Biblical Zoo, and Makhane Yehuda market, with its mix of exciting sounds, colours and aromas.
