“graves everywhere!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

I understand that history describes the valley as full of olive trees etc, but it is now sadly just a huge grave yard, on one side its a Jewish cemetery, and on the other a Muslim one.

Alas, it is a place to visit as it is full of history, and there are a couple of historical tombs that are actually worth visiting!

“Worth seeing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2011

If you are around and interested in Archaeology. This area has some interesting samples of Roman graves, same as you can see when traveling to Roma.
A nice walk is from Mount of Olives , to the Kidron and then into the old city.
