Best time to visit Jerusalem, Israel?

  • We recommend visiting Jerusalem during the early fall when temperatures are still hot but accommodations are more affordable. For an accommodation for 2, expect to pay approximately $105 per night during this period. Save 25% per day compared to what you would have paid in July. Temperatures are in the mid 80s, just a bit colder than the average 90°F you could get during peak season.
  • The busiest season in Jerusalem is during the summer so expect hotel and rental rates to surge during this period. Try avoiding the Sukkot week (October 3rd - 14th), the Passover week (March 28th to April 9th) as well as the Holidays week (December 22nd to January 3rd) if you're on a budget; accommodation rates surge the most during these weeks.
