Setting Description:
The 3,000-year-old city of Jerusalem is sacred to the monotheistic religions of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam.  Visit the Western Wall, the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, and the Al-Aqsa Mosque, and you’ll get a real sense of how important the city is to the three religions. Jerusalem isn’t only about religion or architecture; the city juxtaposes its ancient roots with modern innovations. It’s the seat of Israel’s government, and has plenty of lively cafés and shops as well as nightlife.
