An impressive building, this church has been rebuilt multiple times, but supposedly stands upon the place Christ was crucified. Multiple denominations share space there. Lots of tourists. Some sleazeballs were placing items on the Stone of Anointment for "blessings" and then selling them later. Pretty...More

There was a TON of tourists in the church. Nothing wrong with that in general but the noise levels was very loud as well. Usually, in churches, it's respectful to try and be as quiet as possible, but that was definitely not the case here....More

Although extremely known, you'll have to wonder into old city of Jerusalem to find this hidden church. Access is free every day and many tourists and religious go there. Dress modestly and cover your feet if you want to enter the cave.

Absolutely amazing inside. The giant church is filled with hallways and rooms in all directions. The line into the tomb of Jesus is very long. On average about 2 hours at any given time. I have been able to visit on a few occasions and...More

I don't think you can stay in the church itself. There is plenty of accommodation around there although I suggest staying outside the old city.

I would have the reasonable caution you would have in any city, but I didn't feel especially vulnerable in the old city either. Lots of people, lots of soldiers and police around. The Sepulchre is pretty popular itself, so... More
