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

The focal point of the Jewish Quarter is the Western Wall; steeped in tradition and history - not to mention a holy place for Jewish people

The Jewish quarter has a lot of little nice shops and it is a 1-2 hour shopping fun time. The other areas are nooks and crannys of homes and fun to tour near the sabbath time. Beware of Jewelry shop as we were ripped off on the jewelry.

Walking through the Jewish Quarter, you can feel the history of thousands of years ago. It is too bad that the experience is marred by overzealous shopkeepers and junk store souvenir shops. If traveling in the summer, visit this site in late afternoon or early evening when the temperatures cool down.

This is my favorite part of the Old City. You can begin to image what it was like in the days of King David, Solomon, and Jesus the Messiah. It's fascinating to think about walking on the same stones and path that they did. There are lots of shops, homes, places to eat in this area. Keep in mind, however,... More

This neighborhood has become open, tolerant, friendly and even vibrant compared to many years ago (15). I appreciate that. You can still feel the holiness but with a different face. Now, is enjoyable. People has changed for good.

This is the place to go and to wander, to strike up conversations with residents, to shop a bit, and to have a delicious schwarma sandwich.

It is very interesting to see the old and new together in one place. You can see ruins underneath the current stores. This reminded me of a bazaar, where you can get many Judaica items as well as multi-cultural shops, all together in the streets of Old Jerusalem.
