“an area of potential”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2012

I followed a walk down from the top of the Carmelit towards the Wadi. It was fairly easy to follow the signposts and got to the Wadi, which is 3/4 of the way down the hill towards the port. You could get out of the Carmelit at a lower stop if you prefer. The Wadi comprises a bewildering array of roads and alleys with some nice food shops (there appears to be a trail that I couldn't quite work out of 'tastes of the Wadi'. I bought some food to take home and it was delicious. The sights are not particularly spectacular, but it was a super walk down and interesting to see the area.

“If you wish to see REAL jewish-Arab coexistence - this is the place to visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2012

Visitors to Israel often ask about the possibilities for Jewish-Arab coexistence. Coexistence is actually everywhere, but it is usually not visible. Wadi Nisnas is different. This is an Arab neighborhood, partially Christian, and partially Muslim, but there is a Jewish majority among the shoppers. This is mostly a place for the locals to buy food - high quality meat and produce (fruits and vegetables). This is also one of the best places in Israel to get high quality, authentic street food (other such places are Nazareth and Acre).
