Jericho, West Bank
Whenever the world’s oldest cities are discussed, Jericho is never far from the conversation. Located in the West Bank and not too far from the Jordan River, Jericho has been continuously inhabited for over 11,000 years, has been a significant trading post for much of its existence and is even mentioned in the Old Testament. History continues to be made here; Jericho was the first city given to Palestine after the 1994 Oslo Accords.
History highlight: If you can see where Jesus fasted after being baptized by John the Baptist, go and see it, right? The Mount of Temptation is the place to go, with a cable car whizzing visitors up throughout the day.
