Characterized by narrow, winding streets and alleyways, this ancient part of the city is filled with shrines and attractions holy to Jews, Christians and Muslims including the Western Wall, Temple Mount and the Church of the Holy Sepulchre.

Interesting and complex, large city area to explore. Walk very carefully, it is slippery and uneven walking areas. Also be aware that there is a lot of smoking everywhere. Areas get very crowded with people pushing every direction. Many interesting places to look at, views....More
The old city of Jerusalem is an intricate Labyrinth of holy sites, shops, restaurants and residential areas. The Christian area is actually the easiest to navigate. The Muslim sector is impossible. Every turn looks the same and it’s very easy to get turned around down...More
I walked through the old town of Jerusalem many times. I love the atmosphere of it and do recommend taking some of the smaller, less frequented streets. It is possible, despite the crowded shopping streets and the many groups of pilgrims on the Via Dolorosa...More
We were with a tour group and so didn't have time to explore on our own. It was much more crowded, larger and not well signposted as I had expected. Our guide was great as when we visited it was the Festival of the Tabernacles...More
Everyday we walked into the old city of Jerusalem and through the Jaffa gate. The narrow streets with the stall holders selling a broad variety of food and goods was extremely interesting. In particular we loved the Christchurch Cafe just opposite the Tower of David....More
Thoroughly enjoyed our late lunch. We had eaten at Hatzot on a previous visit to Israel. We could not muster the courage to try the mixed grill but enjoyed the chicken and a veal kabob. Located near machane Yehuda.
Went to Old Jersulam as part of a tour and also went by ourselves on a free day. Let me tell you something. When it comes to people commenting about security in Israel, this is FAKE NEWS. I walked in all districts of old Jersulam....More
Last month we visited Tel Aviv and booked a day tour with Tourist Israel Fun Time. We booked some months out an "English Speaking" tour. Upon arrival at Jerusalem we were met by our guide who asked the question of the 9 people on the...More

If you go to the old city of Jerusalem, you need to walk. Good walking shoes are important. Lots of stairs and often uneven floor. Be aware that it is very slippery when wet. I love to bring my nordish walking stick. It helps with stairs and I feel secure. If you are tiered just sit down for a drink, find a bench in the jewish quarter, or on a old wall. Jerusaelem is not good for Wheelchairs. But there are ways to avoid the stairs. (Booklet in internet)
1 square kilometer, thats the old city. Not more!
