My friends and I had a day to wander around with a guide we hired, who was a local. The Christian Quarter isn't as colorful and crowded as the Arab quarter, but has interesting history. The Church of the Holy Sepulchre is intriguing from a historical standpoint. Queen Helen (mother of Constantine) had 'visions' about where various Biblical spots were... More

We loved the Christian quarter. There were people of different faiths and nationalities in the area. Be sure to visit and glean as much information and stories as people will offer.

I enjoyed the old city in general, and there are yet sights to explore. However, my experience at "Blue Light Special Bazaar" shop really put a damper on my day. He charged me WAY too much. Buyer beware, unless you really enjoy playing the bargaining game.

The architecture of this area of Old Jerusalem is beautiful and inspiring. There are many shops to browse and an excellent area to grab a capucchino or a warm meal. I liked this area for the atmosphere and a mid afternoon lunch.

Really liked this part of Jerusalem, Palestine. Felt so peaceful, both Christians and Muslims in the area. Many churches and places of importance for Christians. It is really nice to take a walk and maybe do some souvenir shopping too. There are restaurants in the area too.

The Christian Quarter is colorfully filled with shops, restaurants and lots of people. It's pretty early in the morning and in the evenings. Jerusalem overall is a clean and calm city.
