“Very Interesting Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013

We arrived behind a huge group of Israeli teenagers. I remember standing in line a long time, and listening to the teenagers talk. They were curious about us. They were noisy, but like any group - we were noisy too. All talking with one another. They were well-behaved but full of life. Then we started our descent into the tunnel. It really depicted the ruins of the ancient city. I loved the old architecture. It's definitely a must see on your visit to Jerusalem.

You must visit simply to walk the tunnels and to get a true feeling of the old ruins to see what it was like to live in the day. It is a calm peaceful area.

“We visited on a very hot day which made it more challenging for all of the walking.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

Try to go early in the day when you still have a lot of energy. You need water shoes for part of the tunnels.
