Very clean and the newest in the Old City, was very nice to see it and hear the story behind. Lots of archaeological excavations are being done there to this day.

Such a living and vibrant part of the city that reminds of ancient Jewish life. Amazing how alive it is and how so much has been restored and modernized, while maintaining the look and feel of its origins. Can't get enough of it.

I personally liked it the most from all the parts of the old city. It is more relaxed and seems cleaner. It is not so overcrowded with people and small shops.

We went to the Jewish quarter towards the end of our tour through the Old City. It is lovely, clean and a bit quieter than other areas. Lovely.
