First of all there are two walks and the ticket is good for two days. So doing one one day and the other the next is the best way. There are lots of steep steps. Very interesting to see the Old City from on top. Get a better idea of the Old City. There are some lovely views too.

This is a really unique way of seeing various areas of the city however you can't get a good view of the Temple Mount and you can't go around the entire city. Still worth it, just find the entrance near the Damascus gate (pay the entry fee at the ticket office near the stairs) and enjoy the walk.

We squeezed in a walk on the ramparts of the old city walls before leaving Jerusalem and I think it was worth the time, if you can manage it. We took the section from Jaffa Gate West to Damascus Gate (an hour or more) - which takes you by mainly the Christian Quarter and up to the Moslem Quarter, with... More

I have to say for the value (I paid 11 NIS) this was well worth it. Sadly I thought it looped around the entire old city but if you walk clock wise from Jaffa gate you will make it to the Lion Gate before the Temple Mount area. Which makes sense in reverence to the holy location but is truly... More

Lace up good walking shoes and have fun here! Scenic, historical and interesting. You will hear many languages being spoken (lots of Hebrew of course, but English and other world languages, too) as many tourists and locals roam through. Bring a camera and enjoy. If you have a guide with you, you will learn a lot more. There is so... More

It was physically demanding but a great way to see the Old City and the New City! We saw things from a bird's eye view that would have been missed otherwise. It took two days to find out that there were 2 different sides to walk on the wall reached from two different places.

Be sure to have your walking shoes on, and try to do it earlier than later in the day. This is not for the faint-hearted, or anyone afraid of heights or narrow stairs. There are plenty of places to stop and take in the views along the way, but once you are one the ramparts, it is a case of... More

This is a good choice for seeing a different view of departs of the old city. Not for people with mobility or ability to climb and descend very steep areas. Some of the rails can be a bit dodgy. I really enjoyed it. Not expensive so good for the budget conscious.

This is a fun perspective to gain over the Old City's different quarters. Glimpse into courtyards, school yards, and gardens otherwise hidden to the eyes in the Christian, Muslim, Armenian, and Jewish Quarters. The uneven stones and many steep steps make for a challenging walk along the top of the walls. Historic plaques identify significant views and locations. The perspective... More
