An intoxicating fusion of colors, scents, and sounds, the Mahane Yehuda Market is Jerusalem’s biggest and oldest shuk. The stalls here sell everything from fresh produce to bread and babka, and in recent years, Mahane Yehuda has also become a hub for top chef street food restaurants.
Jerusalem is an absolute must on our list of things to do in Israel. While tourists come to the City of Gold with a blind list of ancient historical sites and holy landmarks to check off, the capital of Israel is so much more than a big wall and a Jaffa gate. While it doesn't boast any beaches, Jerusalem is rife with dynamic cultural spots and its hotel options and authentic cuisine are as on-point as ever. Add these places to your itinerary for a diverse experience.
