    Very immersing experience complete with open markets. You get to see the mixing of multiple cultures and religions in one place... fascinating

    Why would you come to Jerusalem without seeing this iconic sight!! It's super cool and clean also... one of the only places I've been in this city that isn't covered in trash. The wall is a must see, especially on the Sabbath.

    Orthodox Christians certainly have to visit the Mount of Olives, from where Jesus ascended! There are also a few Orthodox Monasteries & Churches, very important Biblically! The Mount of Olives Hotel makes perfect sense for your stay while there! xo~A

    The Church is the shelter to Christ's crucifixion and burial sites. It protects the Golgotha rock where Jesus was nailed to his cross, died and also the place where he was buried before resuscitating. It has a very spiritual meaning to Christians, and the Middle Eastern vibe of the decorum makes it all the more so special. However, the way the place is administrated (you can read about it in any guidebook) means it's almost dereclit in places. It can also be very crowded and queues to visit the Tomb of Jesus can strech over an hour. Do not hesitate to come back at different hours of the day as the light can change the atmosphere quite drastically.

    We’ve visited two of the tours in the tunnels.

    The Great Bridge Tour was fine. We went deep underground & saw the enormous excavation site under the Kotel. The Wall goes so deep under ground that it will take your breath away. Also, during the rich history, there were many things build and destroyed near it & you’ll see something of each.

    Our guide was very knowledgeable & captivating. Also, she made really good jokes. Unfortunately I am bad with names, but she was one of the archeologists working there with her students - proper lady with nice brittish accent.

    The Chain of Generations on the other hand is more like a educational programme for children. You go through the videos in different rooms in quite fast pace. The narrator automatically expects that every visitor is of the jewish religion which was somewhat awkward - but maybe we missed something in the description of our tour. It’s focused on amplifying the main jewish values, so don’t expect to learn something about the history.

    Practical info- Bridge tour:
    Buy your tickets online in advance & after the arrival, go to the guy near the entrance. He should have your name on the list - he’ll give you the entrance bracelet (similar to Music festival entry bracelets) & when the visit is about to start, they will announce it in english & loudly enough. :)

    Practical info - Generations tour:
    Again - buy your tickets online. And just wait near the door on the right (right after you enter the building) - there wasn’t no “call” this time. :D

    This peaceful, beautifully maintained garden is the perfect place to reflect on Jesus Christ’s death, burial and resurrection.

    The Garden Tomb is a place for Christian worship and witness.

    Staff are very welcoming and knowledgeable.

    Worth a visit on the way up the mount of olives. The garden is well maintained and not trashed which I appreciated. Looks just like you would imagine! There are several can drivers at the entrance that will drive up to the lookout for pretty reasonable amounts. I paid 50 shekels for my group of 3 top to bottom with a short visit at the top for some pictures.

    Excellent experience to walk thru tunnel. We had bright headlamps which helped greatly. We took our time and had a good size group. No rush. Just enjoy the sights.

    Popped in here to see the light show on Saturday to find out the museum was free that day until 16:30. It is basically open ruins of king herod’s Jerusalem palace and great views of the city, though some of the stairs were challenging for my 70 yr old mom. It was an unexpected pleasure to meander through the ruins with very few people there!

    Skip the light show- it’s uninformative, and mildly artistic I guess, but not worth it in my opinion.

    One can sense that this is Holy ground upon which we walk..... Even though the Muslims believe it belongs to them and the Jews, that it belongs to them... we, Christians know that this is holy ground of Judeo-Christian tradition, where Solomon's Temple was built to worship the Triune God Almighty, Who Christians worship!

    This just has to be done by foot, carrying a cross from the very Garden of Gethsemane to Calvary and the Tomb of the Holy Sepulchre! This is the single most important part of our pilgrimmage journey!

    The site where JUSUS prayed. What a feeling you can feel ( at least we could) to walk where JESUS walked.

    Unlike the Arab quarter, there isn't as much shopping but it can be just as confusing to walk around. Although, there are some shops this is more residential than the Arab or Armenian quarters. There are some very interesting old market streets that have been uncovered and on display here.
