The Jewish quarter is cute and you see the wall from the top. However, it is s bit dirty and has a smell of sewer. There are. Serious aggressive men too.

This area is not to be missed. Lots of great restaurants, coffee houses, history and shopping. Its known as the "cardo" which means the heart of this ancient Byzantine City. Many tours available.

A must visit. You even breathe differently here. You just feel at home. Beautiful and meaningful. Quiet and busy at the same time. Jewish children running around free and happy. May it be like that every day!

take care at the rabin in jewish quarter: they stop you, put their hand on your head, make a priere for you and your family , but you never ask for that ... after 10 secondes, they finish, take one of your hand and put a red string around your hand and ask money for charity and for the priere...

Nothing to dislike here, wander about and take in the sights and sounds of the old city, stop a while and watch the world go by.

This quarter of the old city of jerusalem is actually new. It was acquired from the Jordanian's in 1967 during the six day war. The Israeli's then razed the existing structures and rebuilt the city. They did save some of the old roman columns of the cardial street that existed in roman times.

whenever entering the old city of Jerusalem and comming to the Jewish Q and to the wailing wall there is always a deep spiritual feeling and lift even if you are not religious - a defenite place to go visit when in Israel
