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.

When we are visiting Jerusalem, we usually going to Jewish quarter through the old Arab market. When you going through covered old street with many shops which sell everything including souvenirs actually gives you some feeling that you moved from our time to hundreds years ago. If you buy in these shops good behaviour is to argue about price which... More

As with all Jerusalem, the Jewish Quarter along with the Christian, Armenian and Muslim Quarters are Market Places. Highly Recommended, but be careful of sellers who will tell you anything to make a sale.. One man told me he had the original mite from the Widow who lost her mite and swept the house unitl she found it. My response... More

It's not as claustrophobic as some other parts of the Old City. Shops (including some more upscale shops) are more user-friendly. Do see the excavated Roman cardo. The food court area is good if exploring with kids or a larger group. Otherwise skip it and find more authentic fare in other spots. You're in Jerusalem! Do you really want to... More

We spent the afternoon in the Cardo. Loved the history of the place. So many cool alleys to see and visit. We had a yummy lunch and then had a ball shopping the cardo. Great Judaica!

walked through the area for the holiday and the people were pleasant and welcoming; pathways are sometimes steep and slippery when wet

The streets here are wider, cleaner, and the shops actually post prices! We enjoyed good inexpensive (compared to other parts of the old city) food at the food court area near the Western Wall. Holy Bagel was a highlight. We missed the fresh bagels we used to get in the New York City area and these were terrific. So good... More

This quarter was so full of rich history, culture, and food, we wish we could've spent more time. Loved the carts of Shabbat bread lying around.

Facinating place, a must see. Lots of people and eateries, interesting history. Thankfully we managed to find some free toilets which were exceptionally clean. Excellent architecture
