This visit to the Jewish Quarter was especially interesting as there are Muslim, and other living cohesively. There are nice areas for the tour guide to pull over and talk in the shade! The bathrooms were horrendous i will say. No paper and no soap!

This is a lovely place to visit. Considering all the news, I appreciated all the security around and didn't feel it impacted my visit. There are so many sites and sounds in this part of the world. Also so many more places to eat with kids nearby. Lots of walking so very glad we wore good shoes.

It is wonderful to walk in the Jewish quarter's narrow streets and observe the way people live there. We did not take a tour but chose to take our time walking and every now and than take a break at a coffee shop or a juice stand. The Travel Information Center at the entrance to Jaffa Gate can help you... More

The city is beautiful and looks like something straight out of history. I'll save you the tour. The redish lines mark sections of the first temple period, the black the second temple period. A few museums all in close proximity to the square. There are plaques on most things so you can read at your leisure. Most places are open... More

We took a guided tour of all the quarters and everyone found it interesting. The Jewish quarter is the most modern due to recent history. All the quarters just roll into each other.

To visit the Jewish Quarter of the Old City is to experience first-hand the unbreakable and incontrovertible nexus between Jerusalem and the Jewish People. Treated like a garbage dump by the Jordanians until liberated in the Six Day War, today the Jewish Quarter has been meticulously restored. No visit to Israel would be complete without a long visit to the... More
