Owner description: Following two devastating wars and 20 years of enemy occupation, the Jewish Quarter of Old Jerusalem was reconstructed with great attention to harmonious architectural detail. The highlight of the quarter is the excavation of the Cardo, the ancient Roman market street.

“You can imagine what life was like centuries ago”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

I travelled through the Jewish Quarter on my way to the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. There is so much history here. You truly get the sense of what life must have been like when Jesus and the apostles roamed these streets.

“Too commercial”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

It does not have the Old City flavor of the Cardo in Acco or Accra as some call it The shops are too tourist orientated without the actual flavor of genuine Israeli produce.

“The place for coffee!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

A bit different from the other quarters as it has modern shops and coffee machines, a great bakery, some fast-food (not so great) but also some old architecture
