Summary

Summary

From the Wailing Wall to the Dome of the Rock to the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, Jerusalem is an awe-inspiring place, a city steeped in history and sacred to three religions. But, as Arlynn Nellhaus explains in this one-of-a-kind traveler's guide, it is also a vibrant contemporary metropolis, an urban center with its own rhythms, customs, and special places.

Nellhaus, an American who has lived in Jerusalem for more than a decade, offers a treasure trove of up-to-date information on itineraries, accommodations, restaurants, and historical sites. But, unlike other tour book authors, she also shows visitors how to live in Jerusalem -- how to nosh sunflower seeds like a native; when to go dancing in the streets; how to bargain at the market; where to find small, out-of-the-way museums; and much more. For anyone who wants to experience the real Jerusalem, this is the guide.
