Absolutely stunning residential neighborhood with charming narrow passages rich all year with flowers, trees and beautifully renovated old houses. Just walk around this beautiful neighborhood full of history and get amazing views of old city walls.

Absolutely stunning residential neighborhood of 150 years: charming cobblestone streets lined with stone houses with verandas and cast iron balconies. Flowers everywhere, ponds, no cars and feels like both living and frozen history. Interesting to learn about Moses Mntefiore who was the founder of this amazing neighborhood. Very pleasant stroll, different from usual perception of jerusalem and amazing views of... More

I discovered this by accident, and I am so thankfully! I don´t understand why it is not ranked as a top site to visit, because it is. Also historically important, of course not like Old City, but totally worth a visit! Nice and narrow streets, beautiful houses.

Thank goodness our guide suggested we walk over from our hotel to meander through this exquisite area during a free afternoon. An old, quiet neighborhood, it beckons a leisurely stroll along its cobbled lanes (no cars allowed), past quaint stone buildings and homes built circa 1890. Colorful pots of flowers, cascading vines filled with blooms, and abundant greenery lend a... More

Take no-man's land. Fill the abandoned buildings with junk. Let them deteriorate as they marked the pre-67 borders (just beyond). See the potential. Nowhere rest to meander. No cars allowed. (I wouldnt like to be carrying groceries or kids down the steps --but might agree to for the beauty of this place.)

Lots of flowers, like a small village but near the Old City with beautiful views. A nice landmark is the Montefiori windmill. The view from Yemin Moshe is on Mount Zion and the beginning of the Judean desert.

Take in the view from Montefiores Windmill and walk through history in the Old City exploring the Jewish Quarter, Arab Quarter and Christian Quarter. You can't help but to run head on into history!
