- Fun experience to have in Jerusalem with a group. We dressed up as biblical characters and then walked through part of the old city to a special spot for a photoshoot.Written 14 January 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Most tourists to Jerusalem focus on the Christian quarter or the Jewish quarter, depending on their religious perspective. But it's definitely worth spending some time in the Armenian quarter.
Have lunch at the Armenian Tavern or another traditional Armenian restaurant and then go to one of the Armenian ceramic studios. There are four in the Old City. Vic's is located between the Armenian Tavern restaurant and the Jaffa Gate.
I got to meet Vic, see him paint a few pieces, and talk to him about his creative process. His small shop is crowded with his creations, ranging from very modern art to traditional paintings on traditional ceramics. (Some of the other studios only do traditional work.) It was neat to hear about his life in the Armenian Quarter, see him work, and take him a beautiful souvenir of this corner of old Jerusalem.
And in case you were wondering, he can do Christian pieces or Judaica. He can also personalize pieces in a variety of languages.Written 2 January 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- So many great roads and shops to visit in the Old City of Jerusalem, and this is one of them, Christian Quarter Road. The owners of Levantine Gallery are very nice and genuine people who help support local artists. They have some beautiful pieces. They will mail it if needed or you can order online but visiting in person is welcoming and worth it. Great couple! Highly recommend a visit. I want so many pieces to hang in my house now.

- My wife and I have visited Israel many times. We always stay in Tel Aviv, but travel to Jerusalem by bus for a day. This artists co-op is a short cab ride from the bus station and a nice walk to the old city. Everything in the store is hand made from artists in Israel. The prices are more than fair and the customer service is incredible. We have purchased both in person and on line and have always been 100% satisfied. I can't recommend this shop enough.Written 14 November 2020
- In the center of Jerusalem it is possible to find a quiet place with a great museum and a restaurant.
It was the home of Anna Ticho and her husband a known eye doctor.
It was good that the place was kept and not converted in the high rising buildings as many in the area.
Even the garden was saved and the gallery as part of the Israel Museum has a permanent exhibition and also temporary exhibits of Israel artist.
The resturant was located in a upper floor, mainly of italian food.
It is also a coffee place to enjoy at all time.
It is possible also to have small group celebrations in a separate room.
The elevator to get to the third floor is small and not always work what is a problem for elderly people. It should be consider to fix it.Written 13 November 2019

- We love this shop! This store has a reputation for being genuine and knowledgeable in the field of antiquities. We have had an excellent experience each visit and enjoy learning about Israeli antiquities. My husband and I visit this shop each time we visit Israel and purchase genuine artifacts or coins. The knowledge and integrity of the family is why we choose to return to this specific shop. There is always something interesting to see. It is a delight for us to purchase gifts and antiquities that are part of Israels rich history. We purchased a few items last month and had them shipped to our home and the items arrived today in good condition.Written 16 December 2022

- Stayed in the Dan Jerusalem for a week on my honeymoon and just loved the hotel, the amenities & Israel in general. My wife and I stopped by the art gallery down the hall from the lobby to check it out and we were really impressed. We even bought a few things for our new home. About a week after we got home our art came to us beautifully wrapped and now sits on our wall. It really makes our house feel like a home. We love the pieces we got. Thanks!Written 30 December 2015
- A number of years ago, we made our first 'real' art purchase at this gallery with the wonderful patience and help of gallery owner Gabriel Knafo. We couldn't afford what we really wanted, and Gabriel calmly worked closely with us so that we could end up with something nonetheless. He told us it would have to be made for us and it would be sent to us in Los Angeles, framed and boxed. A number of weeks later, just as he said, the piece arrived and we were in possession of that first original, "real" art piece on our wall. Fast forward a number of years and we were back in the gallery on a subsequent visit, admiring the art, enjoying catching up with Gabriel and . . . with Gabriel's patient guidance, purchase #2 was made. Just like the first time, the piece was sent to us framed and boxed, in perfect condition. Fast forward a number of years and once again, we found ourselves back in the gallery, and even though we have been in many other galleries in the counry, on this visit, we worked with Gabriel to purchase a collection of smaller pieces to adorn our dining room and just as occured previously, they arrived in perfect condition when he said they would arrive. In this case, we needed time to make this purchase, and Gabriel gave us the time and space we needed before we actually made the purchase (which we didn't make until long after returning home). Gabriel is a classy guy with the integrity and honesty that makes working with him so pleasurable. It is a blessing to have beautiful art from Israeli artists in our home, and it is equally a blessing to be able to do business with someone as patient, knowledgelable, and personable as Gabriel. If you want to browse a great gallery, don't miss this one.Written 8 October 2018
- This is a unique and beautiful gallery exhibiting cutting edge contemporary photography alongside vintage and rare photography from Israel.
Neil's photographs are a mesmerizing portray of Israeli landscapes
I brought several groups of tourists and locals to this gallery and it's always a wonderful experience.Written 27 June 2021
- it faces the Old City in what was no man's land between 1948-67 (and still has signs of it).
The building itself was constructed between 1927-30 as a wing of St. John's Eye Hospital by architect Clifford Holliday (who also built nearby St. Andrew's Church of Scotland). A tunnel under Hebron Road once connected it to the hospital's first building, today the Mt. Zion Boutique Hotel.
In an eclectic style with oriental influences, it boasts an airy central courtyard surrounded by three floors of some 24 glass-fronted artists' studios and a ground floor exhibition hall. Special features:
* Armenian Tile Room by ceramic artist David Ohannessian
* crests of Scottish nobility - hospital patrons - in the courtyard
* facsimile of 2,700-year-old silver scroll of the Priestly Blessing in ancient Hebrew, found in an archaeological excavation between the House and St. Andrew's Church
* second floor iron railing by sculptor David Palombo (known for Knesset Gates).
Best to visit between 10:00-13:00.
In easy walking distance of:
Old Train Station, Khan Theatre, St. Andrew's Church of Scotland, Lions Fountain/ Bloomfield Garden, Jerusalem Cinematheque, Menahem Begin Museum, Mishkenot Sha'ananim, Yemin Moshe.Written 1 January 2018
- My wife and I took a walk on Mamila avenue and came across this hauntingly beautiful gallery. We both have never seen anything like it, and just could not take our eyes of the artworks (especially the 3 dimensional ones my Mr. Amit and Mr. Benda). The service was fantastic. Highly recommended!Written 13 June 2021
