Traffic Information

When heading out of Jerusalem highways will have signs in both Hebrew and English, making road trips rather easy. Route 1 is the main road leading from Jerusalem to destinations west on the Mediterranean such as Tel Aviv in West and east to the Dead Sea. It is also a convenient route to downtown and West Jerusalem. If heading to East Jerusalem the Route 443 can be a better, less congested option.

Driving in Jerusalem often means navigating narrow streets and tight parking spaces. Parking on the street in Jerusalem is strictly enforced so be careful not to overstay at a paid parking space or you will likely return to find a fine on your windshield. Red and white painted curbs indicate parking is prohibited, blue and white painted curbs signify a legal, paid parking spot. Parking lots and garages are always a good option even if their hourly rates tend to cost more.

Sixt Tips

A rent a car in Jerusalem is perfect for having the means to travel independently and make your own itinerary to see top attractions. Besides all the sights of religious significance you can explore other sides of the city as well. Check out the thought provoking exhibitions at the Museum on the Seam located on the border between East and West Jerusalem or spend a relaxing day in the Jerusalem Botanic Gardens. Walking through the Mahane Yehuda Market is always fun and it will only increase your appetite for the fantastic offerings of the Jerusalem food scene.

Sightseeing Destinations

One of the most popular day trips from Jerusalem is to the ancient Jewish fortress of Masada. The UNESCO listed site, a towering mesa that overlooks the Dead Sea, was the last holdout to fall to Rome in 73 CE. It is recommended to arrive early to avoid too much sun and many visitors choose to plan their trip to coincide with the sunrise. Besides the breathtaking views, once you have ascended you can tour around Herod's palace complex and other ruins. You can also combine the road trip with a stop at the Dead Sea itself and book some time at the spa in Ein Gedi for the full experience.
