Nice place to visit. Glad we finally made it. Tons of history. Too many shops selling the same stuff. The vendors are aggressive. Always trying to get you to buy something. One vendor was charging an outrageous price for a wooden cross that was 1/10th...More

Old City is a world that everyone has to visit at least one time in the life, you need time at least 2 or 3 days to really appreciate it

Old history and today’s history, three major religions of the world, all come together in the very small space known as the Old City of Jerusalem. The sites are iconic - West Wall, Mount of Olives, Gethsemane, Golgotha - and play a major role in...More

Do not miss this, but get a guide, or at least use the 2 hour Free tours from Jaffa Gate three times a day to get your bearings.

Hello J0andBrian The Garden Tomb is doable and it’s not as crowded. There isnt a long queue to get in and you could collect a self guided information from the reception. The Garden Tomb is at Damascus. Enjoy your trip

The safest route to walk is via the Armenian quarter. (NOT through the shuk) rather through the Jewish residential quarter upto the police station in the Armenian quarter and out through Jaffa gate. This is a very busy... More

Hey, I am travelling to Israel for a week in mid June. We are staying within the Old City of Jerusalem, and just wondering what it's like at night? I've heard some horror stories of people feeling unsafe to walk around after dark, and we really don't want to be stuck in the hotel until the sun comes out. If anyone can help reassure me, I'd be really grateful. (I have been to Istanbul and walked out around midnight to the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia - 10 mins walk, and never felt more relaxed, it was buzzing with life - just wondering if the Old city will be anything like this?) Also, we have a jam packed itinerary (Nazareth day trip, Massada & dead sea, Bethlehem & Jericho, Caesaria and Grottos) but we will have two full days to spend in the Old city (Fri & Sun) will these be good enough days to explore, considering one is the Shabbat? Thanks all!
