Jerusalem – Israel’s capital city – might not be on top of everyone’s list as a destination for digital nomads, but it is a good option with several big coliving companies recently opening here. In fact, it’s about to catch up with its neighbor Tel Aviv. Sadly, the cost of living is also rising as the city is growing and the number of properties is limited. In this city steeped in history and culture, there is something new to explore every day. There are over 2,000 archaeological sites and 60 museums to visit. With its rustic Mediterranean feel, Jerusalem combines the old and the new with a unique charm. Here, you can also enjoy the best Mediterranean foods for any budget. Some say that hummus was invented here. Whether that’s true or not, it is certainly delicious. Jerusalem is also a very creative city boasting an artist’s colony and many festivals and art events all year round.
