Do you think you can see all Jerusalem's attractions? If you didn't see the city view from the ancient walls - you just didn't see anything. Try Ramparts walk to feel a special atmosphere of a city from the bird's flow height

Walked the ramparts with our tour guide. Was fun to take a different path rather than just walking through the city again. Gave some nice views and photo ops. We also enjoy hiking and a little more physical activity so enjoyed this. Was not crowded when we did it and was very hot (July). No shade and lots of very... More

Amazing to walk the ancient walls. We did the southern part to Zion Gate. It was extremely hot and there is little shade. Not for people who cannot climb stairs. You look down into the Armenian quarter and out at Mt Zion. We doubled back from the end to exit at Zion gate and see the attractions there. Once you... More

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.
