We went for this walk expecting to see something extra, something you could not (easily) see from inside or outside the wall. This expectation was at odds with reality. There was absolutely nothing extra too see, just a narrow path with unexpectedly many and very...More

Walk on top of Jerusalem’s Old City Walls and see great views while learning about the history of the city, best to have a guide who can point out all the places of interest. There are some stairs but most people can manage the walk...More

This is a great way to see the Old City and surroundings from a less traditional perspective, by taking a walk along the ramparts (at the top of the wall around the Old City). You buy tickets near the entry to the Old City at...More

You can walk most of the way around the Old City on the Rampart walls, getting great views of the Mountains, cemeteries, churches, Jerusalem, etc outside the walls. Also, most areas inside the walls. The cost in minimal.
