Jerusalem and Dead Sea Relaxation 2 days
2 days to Jerusalem and Dead Sea Relaxation Itinerary
Jerusalem is one of the oldest cities in the world. It's located between the Mediteranean Sea and the Dead Sea. Christianity, Judaism, and Abrahamic religions all consider this to be one of the holiest of cities in the world. The walls around the Old City define it. The Old City is home to the Dome of the Rock, the Wailing Wall, the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, and many more holy sites. There is the Jewish Quarter, the Armenian Quarter, and the artists quarter, and so much more.
The Dead Sea is famous geographically as "the lowest point on earth," lying some 400 meters below sea level. It is 75 kilometers long and from 6 to 16 kilometers wide. It is fed by the Jordan River, but it has no outlet. As its name suggests, the Dead Sea is entirely devoid of plant and animal life. This is because of an extremely high content of salt and other minerals—350 grams of salt per kilogram of water, as compared to about 40 grams in the world’s oceans. This concentration is caused by a rapid rate of evaporation. These natural elements give the waters of the Dead Sea certain curative properties, recognized since the days of Herod the Great over 2000 years ago.
