Must visit once in Jerusalem
Jan 2020
This place has been mentioned thru history for thousands of years.
It's a nice mountain, with nice views all around.
There are a few areas that you can park around and even do some shopping of local street sellers.

A Must Visit
Dec 2019 • Friends
This is located outside the Old City of Jerusalem and is possible to go by foot even though it is not that near. This is a Jewish cemetery which is still in use and is a must see when in the city. The many coffins here is a sight to behold.

Marvelous overview of the old town - a picture everyone wants
Feb 2020
Nearly all tours and pilgrimages start from this spot because it affords an overview of the Old Town and the Kidron Valley with the Jewish Cemetery. For the amateur photographer, expect a few crowds during the day, but there is room to spread out and get the pictures. Do not forget to zoom and capture the cemetery below. Also the domes of the nearby Orthodox church are in view. A DSLR with a zoom lens oriented to scenic photography works well. Note: there is a fifteen minute walk available from the viewpoint down to the Garden of Gethsemane, but it is steep.

The Mount of Olives
Jul 2019
The Mount of Olives, the sacred and historical hillside across the Kidron Valley from the east gate of old Jerusalem is filled with numerous significant locations important in the life of Jesus Christ. While parts of the Mount have been otherwise developped, many areas have been developed as Churches to celebrate important episodes in the Life of Jesus Christ such as the Basilica of the Agony (Church of All Nations) celebrating Christ's Agony in the Garden; The Domini Flugit where Jesus cried over the city of Jerusalem; The Church of The Pater Noster where Christ taught His disciples how to pray; and the Garden of Gethsemane next to the Basilica of the Agony where Jesus Christ spent his last night in prayer.
All of these locations are well worth a visit, and should be mandatory for any visit to the Holy Land, but are all closely located - all on the Mount of Olives!

a walk thought history
Jan 2020 • Couples
It is a wonderful place to look at the sunset over the old city. You can get a cab near the old city gates or simply walk up hill. We choose the later because we like to hike. You can see some old ruins, old jewish cemetery, russian church and a burial place of old prophets.

Nice Views
Feb 2020
Nice views of the Old City of Jerusalem from here. A little touristy with a camel waiting for a ride nearby and lines of buses.

Overlooking the City of Jerusalem
Jan 2020
The Mount of Olives is part of the city landscape of Jerusalem. Until we saw this first-hand, we did not realize Mount of Olives was actually downtown Jerusalem and a mere elevation in the actual downtown area.

The Mount of Olives is outside the Old City Jerulasem, on the east side.
Feb 2020
A beautiful pilgrimage site, a different place from the bustle and noise of Jerulasem Fortress. Across the Mount of Olives, the Savior's triumphal entry into Jerusalem took place. The last nights before His death were spent by the Savior on this mountain and from here the Ascension to the Lord took place.
Here you will find - one of the oldest Jewish cemeteries, the wonderful Ghetsimani Garden, the Carmelite Church "Pater noster" and the Church of All Nations.
The panorama from the Mount of Olives on Jerusalem is wonderful: we see the walls of Jerusalem, the valleys of Hinome and Kedron, the Golden Gate and Mount Moriah, the Temple Mount, Mount Zion, the City of David.

Wonderful views
Mar 2020
It is worth the hard trek from the old city up to the Mount of Olives. If you are unfit you may want to get a taxi as the views are worth the taxi fare.
