Continue to the Davidson Center to see subterranean exhibitions that go deep into Jerusalem history, and tour the Southern Kotel excavation site. Visit the Memorial Hall at Ammunition Hill, the site of fierce fighting during the 1967 Six Day War, and follow the stories of the 182 IDF soldiers that fell during the conflict in Jerusalem.
Find the burial places of Israel’s greatest leaders at the National Cemetery at Mount Herzl, then take in the moving Holocaust Memorial at Yad Vashem. Finish the day with return transfer to your Tel Aviv hotel.
