Tour the market and have "tastings" throughout.

We will have a “taste of history” that interweaves stories and anecdotes, historical information, and, of course, combines the senses of smell, taste, and sound. The tour will end at the Western Wall for time to reflect and place your personal prayers.

  • A glass of wine overlooking the Old City walls - At Montefiore Windmill, one of Jerusalem’s iconic landmarks. It was originally a flour mill, built in the 19th century by British philanthropist Moses Montefiore to help the Jews of the Old Yishuv support themselves. Today the windmill houses Montefiore’s golden coach, as part of a small museum about his projects to support Jewish life in the Holy Land. Enjoy a glass of wine of Jerusalem Wines, at a beautiful terrace, overlooking the picturesque neighborhood, the Old City Walls and the in far distance you might see the mountains of Jordan.

What's the weather like in Israel?

It is always best to check the weather forecast beforehand as the weather during the Spring seasons can be unexpectedly warm or cold. From late March through May, daytime temperatures are generally very pleasant - around 65-70°F, though it can still be hot in some areas (such as the Dead Sea and Eilat). There is a slight chance of rain, but it doesn't happen often. It can be cooler in the evenings in the North and Jerusalem - approximately 45°F.
