Very interesting and lively. The buildings and religious buildings were not only quite beautiful but informative. Lots of street life and an area which was wonderfully easy to get lost in.

Today, this quarter looks best and newest from all four. This is due to the recent renovations and finishing the big synagogue. There's a big square around it, with lot of cafes and restaurants. In the middle of the Jewish qt. is the Cardo, one of few remaining old Roman streets. Walk the winding streets and finish with the famous... More

I visited several times during my visit. Sometimes with a guide, mostly on my own. The history is a lot to take in - and important to learn. Pay attention to landmarks and street names if you want to find your way around. It's a warren of winding streets which play havoc with a sense of direction. I visited the... More

Alleys, arches, small squares, narrow streets leading to more narrow streets in an endless discovery of an enchanted neighbourhood.

A stroll around the Jewish Quarter is not to be missed. What you will see is the beautifully restored Hurva Synagogue, the 4 Sephardic Synagogues and the Broad Wall that Hezekiah built.

There is probably no place on earth as safe. I have see three year old girls walking unaccompanied and perfectly safe in the quarter. The Jews are busy but friendly if you engage them. The narrow streets are confusing but if you get lost everyone if glad to give you directions, just know which gate you are looking for. Great... More

For some reason, this quarter felt so peaceful. It is quaint & quiet. There is a sense of ease. (Not laden with markets helped.) There is a wonderful courtyard with many types of food in the immediate area. Lots of benches. Could relax for a few hours here as if you were in any park in the world. Facilities nearby.... More

Essentially reduced to ruble in 1967 this is the only part of the old city with modern buildings. It's also the part of the old city with the best food. The Jews can really cook it up!
