We stopped here as part of an Israel tour. It is fun to walk through. Stop at the Blue and White Gallery, the prints are very creative and not expensive. The owner is a great guy.

It is really strange to feel the energy you can not explain.
This is Jerusalem, any part of this strange, beautiful city.

Located in the Jewish Quarter, it is a nice and very pleasant area to walk through, not so much for the ruins but for the overall aspect of the cobblestone covered street, its arches and the multitude of little shops, selling art, antiquities, jewelry and good food...

It is fun to visualize how fancy this street used to be during Roman times. Now ruins and art galleries.

This is a pretty interesting stop and gives you an understanding of some of the transformation that the Romans did when they were running the city of Jerusalem.

The Cardo Maximus, an ancient Roman-Byzantine main street, would have run the whole length of old Jerusalem. Of course, a lot has changed since then! Thanks to excavations in the 1970's, sections of wall dating from the First and Second Temple periods can be viewed. An area of the Jewish Quarter has also been reconstructed into an arcade of art boutiques and shops with beautiful arched ceilings and stone walls. Nearby, a “City Streets” reconstruction, including a beautiful wall mural, provides a fascinating glimpse of life in the 6th century Byzantine era.
