Jerusalem Named Africa/Mideast’s Best City

Jerusalem was voted the No. 1 Best City in Africa and the Middle East and Tel Aviv No. 3 by the readers of Travel+ Leisure magazine.

Jerusalem reached the top spot for the first time since 2000. Tel Aviv, which was behind Cape Town, South Africa, made it to the top 3 for the first time.

The results are published annually in the magazine’s August issue.

“We are thrilled by this result because it underscores the growing realization by sophisticated travelers that our two main cities are unique and extraordinary places to visit,” said Arie Sommer, Israel’s tourism commissioner for North and South America.
