The time to visit is when for the festival 'holiday of holidays' if and when a Muslim holiday accrues close to Christmas and Chanukah (Jewish). It's simple fun to walk up and down the narrow streets, watching different people, experience new aromas and flavors.

A place of co-existence! Arabs, Jews, Muslims&Christians, live together in harmony! Many good restaurants,coffe houses etc. Open markets as well. A very colourful place indeed. Every Sunday you can hear churches' bells' ringing which contribute a magic atmosphere.
