We had a fantastic time staying at the Gloria Hotel just inside the Jaffa Gate and with our guide Ruthi. We came away with a greater understanding of the history and complex issues that face the Middle East. Peace will come from the grass roots not from the leaders who manipulate their followers to stay in power and to enhance their personal wealth.

We spent a beautiful Shabbat afternoon stroll thru the Jewish Quarter. Lots of children, families & couples like us enjoyed the beautiful sunny day with temperatures in the mid 69’s. Since it was Shabbat stores were closed including the Cardo. It was nice window shopping from Judaica to art and great people watching.
Wear comfortable shoes as the walks are stone and uneven along with some stairs & ramps. Difficult for handicapped.

As cities go, Jerusalem is not that big (about 850,000). The old city, that surrounded by 16th century walls, has only about 40,000 residents, but because of the ancient narrow streets, it is always very crowded. This is a place you want to simply walk, observe, and look in the shops. The variety of people from around the world, and the inhabitants of the four city quarters (Jewish, Muslim, Christian, and Armenian), basically live shoulder-to-shoulder, and get along, the way humanity should be. The history and religiosity of the city can be daunting, but fascinating on so many levels. How much time should you devote to Jerusalem - as much as you possibly can, but certainly no less than 4 days. Although you will be tempted to return to places you discovered and really liked, try not to spend too much time repeating, as there is so much to see and do, it would be a shame not to maximize your visit.

It is nice to wander around and explore, try the different foods and juices. Don’t overpay for anything and haggle with the vendors.
