Loved the shops, the markets, the food, the hospitality. If you go on a Friday, go early because shops start closing around 2 or 3 pm for Sabbath.

Regardless of your religious faith, the Jewish Quarter is unique and well worth your time. Take your time as you pass through it on your way to the Western (Wailing) Wall.

There are lots of interesting places in this quarter, but you would need to discover this area with a personal guide able to talk about the shaken history of some buildings.
