    Fantastic experience to be at Jerusalem's wailing wall at different moments of the day. It doesn't feel inappropriate to be part of a highly spiritual ceremony as a non-jew, as long as you follow the rules and regulations.

    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.

    The western wall itself is a site to see. This experience really adds to the overall history and majesty of this place. The guide was very informative and being up close and personal to the layers and layers of wall that have been built over thousands of years is truely awesome for any history buff! My son was a little bored but he's 16... if you like history and something tangible this is for you.

    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!

    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.

    My first night in Jerusalem, after coming from Jordan

    I thought I'd been transported into a fusion of Mediterranean life meets a busy London vibe with multigenerational families enjoying food, chat and listening to a couple singing and playing the violin

    I can't comment on the shopping experience other than previous TA positive reviews. The only shop I did encounter was a tech phone one, with a very helpful assistant

    Was a lovely way to start my brief journey through Israel

    We stopped here as part of an Israel tour. It is fun to walk through. Stop at the Blue and White Gallery, the prints are very creative and not expensive. The owner is a great guy.

    This is one of the main entrances to the old city and the Arab shuk. You may be called to buy vendors. If you are looking for souvenirs, you can find them here but be aware that the market continues if you keep walking straight. There are some historical areas here and the entrance to the Ramparts Walk. On the outside of the gate, down the steps, is the Mamilla Mall, also a great, shopping area with fancier type stores and restaurants.

    Jerusalem has many areas that are special, Ein Kerem is one of them, like a rural area in the midst of the city, but with attractions that need to be visited.
    It is an area very much related to Christianity, the site of the birth of John the Baptist, the church of the Visitation, the Church of St John, the well of Myriam, and also good restaurants, a place that is a must visit in Jerusalem

    A steep descent into the church, the place, guarded by monks hard at work that the tourists behave respectfully.

    The Damascus Gate is one of the original eight gates leading into Jerusalem's walled Old City, now within the Muslim Quarter district. Also known as the Shechem Gate (or Nablus Gate), there is a flurry of activity from the foot traffic through the gate, as well as the merchants selling their wares. We accessed the Garden Tomb and Golgotha located nearby, outside the wall, through the Damascus Gate. The imposing Damascus Gate and wall surrounding Jerusalem's Old City are quite impressive from the exterior stairs, which lead up to the streets of Jerusalem.

    While you are seeing these wonderful windows you also get to learn about the truly remarkable woman-run organization that supports this hospital and its sister hospital on the other side of town. It is really worth the effort to come. Entrance is 25 shekels and includes a good audio covering the details of all of the windows, each of which tells its own story.

    Buried in a christian cemetery so look for the grave with all the rocks as Jewish tradition is to leave one. There is more to see than just his grave. I liked the memorial as well.

    We reached Mt. Zion on the 4th day of our pilgrimage. There's an ambiguity on the historical significance of this sacred hills as far Judaism and Christianity are concerned. But fact is, it played a crucial role in shaping the final days of Christ even His mother, the Blessed Virgin Mary.
