Founded in the 16th century, the small city of Ramallah has built a reputation as the "Cultural Capital of the West Bank," known for its open-minded religious attitude.
Kick off your visit on the 1st (Sat): take an in-depth tour of Yasser Arafat Museum, don't miss a visit to Arafat's Tomb, do a tasting at Taybeh Winery, look for gifts at Noora Heritage House, then examine the collection at Mahmoud Darwish Museum, and finally explore the galleries of Dar Zahran Heritage Building.

For many, Bethlehem needs no introduction.
Get out of town with these interesting Bethlehem side-trips: Hebron (Masjid-e-Khalil Mosque & Me'arat ha-Makhpela), Gush Etzion Heritage Center (in Gush Etzion) and Mount of Temptation Monastery (in Jericho). There's still lots to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Church of the Nativity, steep yourself in history at The Church of St. Catherine, revel in the low prices at Blessings Gift Shop and The Olive Wood Factory, and take an in-depth tour of Palestinian Heritage Center.

For more things to do, other places to visit, where to stay, and other tourist information, go to the Bethlehem driving holiday planner.

You can drive from Ramallah to Bethlehem in an hour. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 7th (Fri) to allow time to travel back home.
