The 'underground' Cardo is good to see; the reconstruction of the ancient Roman street, with a large mural on the wall to show what it likely looked like 2000 years ago. A few good pizza and coffee places (relatively quiet locations). Mostly a bit average compared with the rest of ancient Jerusalem city.

ThevAtmenian orthodox quarter is as is the rest of this fantastic city....haunting, unique, total mesmerising interest and another part of Jerusalem which you will never forget. The area is similar to the other quarters in architecture, the stonework is the similar pale sandstone and the narrow passages are unforgettable like the souk ways with large cobbles and atchesys that sometimes...

We were on a conducted tour and enjoyed seeing this part of Jerusalem and its people. We suggest that you make it part of your visit too.

Peaceful Armenian quarter is the smallest part of the Old City. Armenian Cathedral is the biggest attraction here as well as David's tower and museum. Armenian community lives here in peaceful status, avoiding any conflicts with surrounding religions.

Unfortunately the Armenian Tavern was closed for the several days we were there (Seasonal according to a sign in the window), but the Quarter was nice and peaceful. Visit the St James Cathedral as it was quite nice, and while we were there the choir of Armenian monks were signing some very beautiful and haunting hymns and chants. This is... More

If you're looking for an authentic souk experience but don't want to walk all over the Old City, this is a good and friendly place to start. You'll find everything from tacky souvenirs to shoes, rugs and spices and pretty much everything in-between. Hawkers are shameless and you have to be hard-nosed about haggling or you will be royally ripped... More

So clean the floors sparkle which is the only place besides the Holy Sepulchre and Christian Quarter. Because the crowds were so light, we were able to stroll several times throughout the four Quarters and see folks going about their daily business of preparing their foods, setting up shop, cleaning their homes and going to Mass or service. Many of... More

The quarter itself is mostly a closed compound, but St James Armenian Cathedral - open briefly every day for liturgy - is definitely worth a visit! Precious reminder of the rich Christian heritage of the Armenian church.

A really recommend visit these three quarters: Christian, Armenian, Muslim. Is nice because you can remark the differences. For me the Armenian quarter was the less welcome.

The quarters of the old city each bring a different flavor, attractions and many merchants. To get an understanding of the dynamics and complexities of the old city it is good to walk through all four quarters. Each has is special sites worth seeing. As fro Merchants, it is generally priced high as one would expect in a major tourist... More
