    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    A holy place, visited by pilgrims such as we were, but this review focuses on the problems of photographing the site. Two primary issues are crowds - which means long waits for access and a short time at the site - and lighting. Regarding the lighting, plan on using high ISOs for exposures. As to the crowds, travel light - good use for a pocket camera - and plan ahead, pre-programming your settings so that you can grab a few pictures. Consider taking pictures while in line or just afterwards. And using flash may not be appropriate.
