this has so much history and even the many gates are heritage. The stations of the Cross via Delarossa is very moving and the many churches are a must to see

Being sacred to the three Abrahamic religions, it is impossible to get to know Jerusalem´s many facets in a week, a month or even a year. Each time one goes back, either you stumble upon a previously unknown feature, or else something new has just...More

This is one of those things that you have to do before you die. It's spectacular, it's magnificent and it's awesome. The history is evident, the places are all there, just waiting for you to discover them and its fantastically emotional.

If your interested in history and the Bible this is a must see experience. The churches have built over all the “Holy” sites so sometimes it can get very crowded and lines of people can be long. But don’t get put off, it’s worth it.

Love love loved the old city! It's basically one large market with old religious sites for the 5 main religions. Some of the sellers are pushy but if you know how to bargain, you'll be fine. Definitely try the fresh fruit drinks!

We really our half day tour of the old city. Our tour guide, Itamar, was knowledgeable and communicated clearly. We learned a lot and truly enjoyed the experience.

I was so amazed with the old city, all the different people all getting along. The different quarters, and all the shops selling spices.

I doubt that there will be any difference, but I travel very little in the West Bank when I am in Israel. Jerusalem, I expect, will be fine, and I see that Bethlehem, which is in the West Bank, was quite pleasant for... More
