Jerusalem Botanical Gardens, Jerusalem
The Jerusalem Botanical Gardens are a tranquil oasis in the heart of Israel's ancient city. Just a short hop from Museums Row, the gardens offer a welcome respite from the hustle and bustle of the city with an impressive 30 acres under cultivation.
Wander along meandering paths and enjoy enchanted corners, water pools and shaded seating while admiring over 6,000 species of plants from all over the world - including some 400 of Israel's endangered species. You can even sit by the lake and enjoy a cool drink or fresh local food at the Caffit B'Gan Café.
