    Although this memorial has a terrible story to tell, the way it is told and the design of the building make it an unmissable and unforgettable experience.

    The Childrens museum is so haunting, it is breathtaking.

    Make sure you visit when you are in Jerusalem.

    Not to be missed. Who knew what was going on alongside the Western Wall? The depth, breadth and sophistication of these tunnels are amazing to behold. Along with their proximity to the Holiest sites. A MUST SEE.

    The Holiest place for every Believer. It’s a sum of different faiths and you must visit it. It’s located of the end of the so called “via dolorosa” and once there you may find a lot of people, different languages and a lot of queues.
    We visited it in the morning but we had nor enough time so we went back in the afternoon of the following day and we could appreciate much more as there’s less crowd. You cannot stay too much inside the tomb; there’s a monk who tell you to speed up!

    You've probably heard a lot about Hezekiah's Tunnel. It's an ancient tunnel that was constructed around 800BC, years ago', as far as we know. It was built to carry water. As far as the water goes, it's cool. The water is rarely deeper than your calf. The tunnel can get a little squeezy at times, but nothing threatening. By the way, play safe and take a flashlight

    One of the nicest markets I've been to, and I've been to a lot of markets.. :) Mostly food, little restaurants, cafés..can be pretty busy (especially during lunch and dinner times) but the walking alley between the market stalls is wide and is being cleaned regularly. Here and there very loud music, young people having fun especially in the evening. Not cheap, but good quality food and cheaper than in restaurants/shops in the (Old) city.

    The Holy Sepulcher houses what is traditionally believed to be the tomb of Christ. The tomb is supervised by a number of traditional custodians, who rarely agree. The number of pilgrims who wish to worship at the tomb is always large, you may have a long wait.

    We are not religious but we really liked this church. It's beautiful. We went there on Sunday afternoon, just after 14.00 and it was almost empty. Nice and quiet.

    This was one of my favorite places we visited in the Holy Land. It was a gorgeous church with wonderful acoustics. Everything is so beautiful and the pools were incredible as well.

    This church is built on the site where it is presumed that Jesus was tried after his arrest and where Peter thrice denied him (thus Gallicantu / cock crow). It's a nice landmark, visible from multiple places around the city and valley. We visited as part of a tour and enjoyed hearing about some of the history and scripture associated with the church and its site. The views from the church grounds over both the Mount of Olives and towards the Walled City and Temple Mount are very nice, and I really liked looking out over some of the historical dig and a set of stairs that are ~2000 years old and may have been used by Jesus.

    The Cardo is an ancient arcade in the Old City of Jerusalem that dates from Roman times, when it formed one of the city's main axes. It has been rebuilt, it's popular as a place for a stroll on Saturday night.

    Good collection, well thought out and arranged chronologically. It's a nice complement to the Israel Museum nearby.

    This is a beautiful Synagogue with staff who are most friendly and informative. It was a bit challenging to find the entrance, but walking around the entire building led me to steps up to the entrance. The small lobby area provides information and a small model that gives one perspective. Take the stairs (or elevator) up one level to the Women's section and view the gorgeous sanctuary. Another level up takes to a large veranda that overlooks a part of the Old City. If you're adventurous, and I was, climb up the very narrow curved staircase to another narrow balcony that wraps completely around. Bring your camera (or phone camera) to take some awesome panoramic photos of the city. This was a most enjoyable visit.

    Great experience. Wonderful presentation. Highly recommended.
    How Israel from its founding fathers, until today including the hard en dark ages.
    Surprised how Christians in the last century have treated the Jews and how they have empowered the rise of the nation in contradiction to the Middle Ages.

    Menachem Begin was both a warrior and a peacemaker. His ambition was to expel the British from Palestine. As leader of the breakaway group Irgun, he was instrumental in achieving that aim. He eventually ended 30 years of Labor dominance in the Knesset and led a Likud-dominated coalition to power. In 1979, Begin became a peacemaker, doing a deal with Egypt's President Anwar Sadat. The peace agreement was not universally popular as it involved territorial concessions, including returning Sanai to Egypt. This led to bitter recriminations. Begin, for all his faults, was a giant of a man. Even if the peace between Israel and Egypt is a cold peace, it is better than no peace at all.

    For many pilgrims, visiting the Christian Quarter is the highlight of their visit to the Holy Land. The Christian Quarter Old City contains many sites of interest. Probably the Via Dolorosa, which follows Christ's journey of suffering, and ends at the Holy Sepulcher where Jesus was crucified, died and was buried, is the highlight. There are many interesting shops in the area, selling everything from Roman antiquities to nuts and herbs. You will usually smell cardamon, the distinctive spice that is included in Arab coffee.
