One of the world’s holiest cities and cradle of three different religions, Jerusalem is just 8 km to the north of Bethlehem. The city has been besieged more than fifty times, conquered thirty six times and destroyed ten times. The important attractions in Jerusalem include Church of the Holy Sepulchre, Church of Gethsemane, Church of All Nations, Dome of the Rock, Distant Mosque, Western Wall, Garden Tomb, Citadel (Tower Of David), Mount of Olives, and Tomb of Virgin Mary.

One of the oldest inhabited towns in the world, Hebron is regarded as the place where Abraham, Sarah, Isaac, Rebecca, Leah, and Jacob were buried. The town, situated to the south of Bethlehem perched at an altitude of 1,000 metres, is regarded as sacred not only by the Christians but also by Jews and Muslims. Major attractions here are the Old Town, Modern Hebron, Al-Haram Al-Ibrahimi, Oak of Abraham, Halhoul, Archaeological Museum, and Dhahriyyeh.
