This walk on the walls of the old city provides beautiful sites. Some steep steps may deter young kids, the elderly or others with mobility problems. It was deserted when we went (we saw one other person), which was nice given the crowds elsewhere. Perhaps it was because it was mid day in July, very hot, and the walk is... More

We had a fine walk on the north ramparts, with interesting information from a tour guide we downloaded to a cell phone (in Hebrew, don't know if there is an English version).. Be sure to take water. Also, be aware that you may find yourself alone, We did not meet anyone else the whole time we were on the ramparts.... More

Climb on top of the ramparts to get a different perspective. You get a spectacular view of the city beyond the walls, and a unique insight as to how people live inside the city. The path along the walls can be accessed from Jaffa Gate. There is a small entrance fee.

Make sure you walk along part of the ramparts at the very least. Great views and great sense of what how the City used to feel.

For a small fee you can walk on the Ramparts. Up and down stairs in between walls you will get to see beautiful Jerusalem. It is slippery so wear sneakers and enjoy the beautiful views and history. I took a self guided tour and read the blurbs on the walls.

While walking around parts of the city (you can't walk all the way around), you can enjoy the sights and information cards tell you what you are seeing including a bit of history. For one and the same price you get to see the two parts of the ramparts walk, just keep your ticket and go to the other entrance... More

There is a really neat view. It is a cool experience to walk along the wall. We had a little trouble with IDF when we went, but it was resolved quickly.
