Fully illustrated with 111 full-page colour photographsJerusalem is truly unique in almost every way. For 3,000 years, people have fought over this city, destroyed it, and rebuilt it again. It is a place of great spirituality and beauty, and also of prophecy, historical intrigue and violence. It has been a stage for kings, conquerors, prophets and saints. Legends and secrets surround the palaces and ruins, churches and tombs and the overwhelming Old City, filled with sacred places. Although a place of contention among religions and between Israelis and Palestinians, the city is also a modern metropolis with bold architecture, vibrant markets, spectacular restaurants, dozens of theatres and 80 museums. Join us on an exciting tour of Jerusalem, a stronghold of culture and science and an international magnet for artists and writers.
