My wife and I will be traveling in Israel for 2-weeks in May. I have been to Israel many times as a back packer in my youth. This is the first for my wife. We are planning on doing a mix of luxury accommodations and more traditional back-packer style like when I bummed around Israel.
Because I want to show her as much as I can, I am renting a car for 14 days to quickly get us from place to place.
We plan to stay at the Abraham Hostel for 3 nights in Jerusalem as part of our back-packer portion of the trip. I know that this is right in the heart of the city.
Am I even crazy for thinking that I will be able to find a spot for my car while I am there? All I want to do is park it once in a spot for 3 days and leave it there until we are ready to leave. Are there any paid parking spots where I could leave it? Even if it is kind of expensive, I don't mind.
I do have an alternative. I have family in Rehovot that I will be visiting. If necessary, I could leave the car there and take the bus to Jerusalem. The only issue with that is that it would involve having to take the bus back to get my car and resume the rest of our trip, where the next destination is the Dead Sea. So we would definitely be going backwards before we could go forwards again.
I am not totally against having to do this, but based off of the responses that I get here, I think I might just have to.
Any help or advice would be appreciated :)
