The ramparts walk will give you a top down view into modern life in the old city in a way that nothing else truly can. Be aware that you can only do one half at a time so pick which half of the walls you...More

You do get to seem some interesting things, like Jews bathing their babies in kiddie pools, and a basketball court at a school, but to get a feel for the old city? Not from this walk. You see a lot of rooftops and trash. Lots...More

If you have trouble with heights or walking up stairs, this is not for you. Scenic view of the Old City. Good activity for a Saturday, when most everything else is closed.

You have to be aware that, once you go out, you cannot get back again to the ramparts again and nobody told me that so I could finish until the end because I went out on the Lions' Gate. Lucky me I didn't go out...More

YES - we used the ticket to go North one day and then South the NEXT day... just confirm with the ticket agent when you buy it how long it is good for but you may definitely do it on different days. It is tiring enough that... More

You pass the gate into the square, and immediately on your left there is the tourist office where you get the tickets.
