Old Jerusalem, behind the walls is everything and more than one can imagine. Yes there are lots of tiny shops and market traders selling fruit, veg, toys, icons, pottery, clothes, ecclesiastical goods, clerical attire, plus churches, mosques, caves, fountains, archeology. It is smelly and crowded....More

It can be seen from various angles; from far away mountains. Why is it such a beautiful city? How King David viewed it from far away hills? I imagined how people listened to Jesus in this city. Clean and methodical place.

Yes, but you need a different car/bus on each side of the King Hussein (Jordan side)/Allenby (Israeli side) Bridge and I believe you still need to walk across the borders each way. You pay departure taxes in both directions... More
