Safest part of the old city

You will feel very safe in this quarter of the old city. Extra security as you approach the Western Wall. Families dress up for this solemn ritual which you must see.

Went as part of a tour. Walking through the narrow alley ways gives you a sense of how it must have been in the olden days. Get to meet lots of people from all over the world. Didn't really buy anything but plenty of choices for souvenirs almost all the shops sell similar things.

Nothing more pleasurable than walking the very same streets as the Prophets in such a beautifully planned district of this great city. The greatest Biblical heroes of old were here, together with priests, nazirites and throngs of festival goers thousands of years ago. Wander off the beaten path into a courtyard. Amidst the quiet of a flowering patio garden in... More

We spent the day exploring the city of Jerusalem and were fascinated by work being done to protect the heritage contained within these walls. We felt completely safe as my wife and I strolled the inner streets.

After leaving the hustle and bustle of the Christian and Muslim quarters you will immediately perceive that you have entered the Jewish quarter. The buildings are recently built: in the 70's and for a city like Jerusalem that's very recent indeed. Beautiful architecture designed to fit in with this special location. The excavations at the Cardo are worth a visit.... More

So many little children running around, jumping rope, and rushing through the central square. Business taking place in the Cardo. Life is vibrant here!

I've been to Jerusalem six times and I love to walk through the old city and as you pass into this area of the city, you will be amazed. When you walk through the Arab quarter, it is like you are in a 3rd world country... crowded, filthy, and smelly. Walk literary a few feet into the Jewish Quarter and... More

Jerusalem city is divided into many sections when certain religions live. This part shows some of the old city that has been discovered while newer building have been built. It is interesting to look up on the walls and see the names of the streets.

When ever we visit a new city we always go to the markets and this one was great. So much to see and so much to buy; and to eat. One can go crazy trying to decide to a buy olives from this vendor or than one or which has the best breads. While we were in Jerusalem we visited... More
