The old famous souk main passageway to the Western Wall
Jun 2021 • Family
“I visited this place” with Shnookel and Shmegehgie, two native born Israeli teenagers. We descended and walked through the sparsely visited main market street, filled primarily with gaudy sleek tacky trashy souvenir shops, presumably offered to unsuspecting tourists at outrageous prices. For a first timer from a western country, it is certainly unique and special, but be careful- watch your step and watch your possessions.

Please see my “helpful” photos.

A truly wonderful place to just 'be a tourist' and enjoy the ancient historic district of Jerusalem.

To be enjoyed to the fullest without many people

There weren't many people, so we had the time to explore it as much as we wanted, without the nuisance of big crowds :)

Nothing Compares To Walking the Streets of the Old City of Jerusalem
Apr 2021
The stones, the feel, the smells, the sounds, the colors, the people, the sites, the stalls, the food- nothing like it in the world. Just fantastic. Visited 5 times in 7 days-each day discovered new and different things.

Easter 2021 Jerusalem Photos.Jerusalem begins to fill up with Christian tourists as Easter approaches. Easter Sunday in 2021 falls on April 4, but special services will take place the whole week before starting on Palm Sunday, March 31 and continue until Easter Monday on April 6. Be prepared for crowds and a wonderful, meaningful experience in the city where you’ll be walking in Jesus’ final footsteps surrounded by fellow believers.

Jerusalem is the holiest city for the three major religions. It is full of attractions and make a moving, thrilling experience. A guide is preferable. Enjoy.

What an experience!

I have seriously no words. This is one of the most wonderful places I've ever seen. I recommend walking around on the nights of Hanukkah, or just getting lost in the side streets. It's beautiful and other worldly.

Try to spend days, not hours, here
Jan 2020
The old city is small, but there are just so many things to see that it should take you days to go through it. There doesn't seem to be any way to visit the churches without wading through crowds everywhere. The shops selling cheap souvenirs does lessen the experience somewhat. We actually prefer visiting the sites in the Mount of Olives across the valley from Old Jerusalem, but this is definitely worth seeing.

Drink in the history
Dec 2019
Fascinating that so much history can be so well preserved in one place! A must for history buffs - this area has to be among the top locations in the world for frequency of ancient historical sites per square mile!
