Focus on the holy sites and avoid the multitude of markets that appear to sell Christian items and you will bring to life the many lessons and stories learned throughout the years. The best way to experience this area is with a Catholic or Christian guide to help point out the numerous shrines, sites, holy places and history of the... More

Shops everywhere here and it appeared most of the shop owners were Muslims but I'm not certain. Anyhow it was very nice walking through here and there are lots of handcrafted items to buy.

I loved the markets, there is such a variety or people, spices, clothing and unique gifts. One of the most interesting items were shoes and sandals made out of came skin.

Our walking tour of the Christian Quarter was along the part of the Via Dolorosa (the way of suffering) which is said to be the path Jesus walked on his way to his crucifixion. The 14 "stations of the cross" are marked along the way so it is good to have a guide to point them out and explain, the... More

My wife and I went on a 5 hour tour of the Christian quarter with Moti Barness. Moti's intimate knowledge of every alleyway is unsurpassed. He is a wealth of knowledge regarding every building, alleyway, church and site. As always with Moti, the tour was fun, educational and never dull. I cannot imagine taking a tour anywhere in Israel without... More

All the quarters and kind of similar, but in my opinions this one is the second best after the Jewish quarter. Again, many shops and religious places to visit abound.

They go out of their way to help you with whatever you need. Excellent quality, prices and service. The only shops you... More

Again, churches to see, small streets, Via Dolorosa. Stations are not always easy to find. Try to go early to avoid the crowds.
