Almost like you have been transported back in time. Plan on spending quite a bit of time here when visiting Jerusalem. There is so much to see here, it's awesome.

Lots of walking on old stone paths. Tombs, churches, down into underground caverns & street vendors offering their wares with negotiable prices make this an interesting place to visit. Our group was on a religious pilgrimage so we did not stop to do much shopping...More

Enter by any of gates and head to the western wall or head to the old market . Be prepared to get lost so make sure you go with a local.

No matter what your religion visiting the old city is something to behold. The streets are narrow and crowded, so moving around is a challenge in some places.

This is a very broad location to review. Enjoy the great scenery and holy sites. Be respectful and always haggle. Most vendors can be talked down to at least a 1/3rd of their start price. I highly recommend walking tours. There is so much to...More
