The most panoramic view of Jerusalem, together with the Judean Desert, this is the perfect place to end the #99 bus tour, especially at the twilight hour, when the light gives real meaning to the description "Jerusalem of Gold."
The Hass viewpoint gives one a fabulous view of the Old City and surrounding areas.. This view point is only second to the view from the Mount of Olives but is much easy to reach and does not necessitate going through East Jerusalem and the...More
On our first trip we stopped here when we first got to Jerusalem and we didn't know what we were looking at. This trip we stopped here part way through our visit. It made much more sense as we were able to identify much of...More
The first view of the old city is breathtaking. Looking at the Center or the Heart of the World. An excellent place for your tour guide to show you where you will be going or at the end of your visit to put everything into...More
The Haas Promenade has a great view of the old city of Jerusalem. It's situated at the top of a hillside...from there you can see Mt. of Olives and the old city. The day we went (in March 2018) it was REALLY cold and windy...so...More

I don't think there are direct buses from Jaffa gate to the promenade. Easiest way will be to take a taxi...
If you are in the center of town, central bus station or the "First Station" then bus 78 goes to the prominade
How much time I should spend on Mt. of Olives? My research shows following sites are interesting to see: Dome of the Ascension, Garden of Gethsemane, Church of Mary Magdalene, Dominus Flevit Church and Basilica of the Agon. Am I missing anything? I see lots of good pictures that have golden panoramic view of Jerusalem, especially the Old City. I guess they are taken from Mt. Olives. How about Tayelet Haas Promenade? Which one is better for Jerusalem overlooking? I might want to go there...More

Of the two lookout points, the Mount of Olives is superb and far more dramatic than the [beautiful] view from the Haas Promenade. Start your morning on the Mount of Olives at 8am. The morning hours are the best in terms of the view. Do NOT bother visiting that area in the afternoon when the sun will be directly in your eyes. The primary Christian holy places in the area include: "Mosque" of the Ascension, Pater Noster Church, Dominus Flevit and the Basilica of the Agony in the Garden...More
Sabbath in Jerusalem, is this possible? (32 Replies)
Our last day in Jerusalem is the Sabbath. Is there anything on this proposed itinerary that would be closed/ we cannot do on a Saturday please? Day 14. Jan 16. Sabbath. Our last day! Be observant for all the ways the Jews have programmed both rest and celebration into this day. We will walk the most authentic route of the Via Dolorosa from the Mount of Olives down through the garden of Gethsemane, along the Kidron Valley and up to Herod’s palace, the place of Jesus trial. Then on to both...More

All of that is possible -- it would not be on the tour if it were not, but in fact, all Christian and Muslim sites in the Old City are open on Shabbat (the Sabbath), and even many others, such as the Tower of David Museum of the History of Jerusalem. I'm not sure what they are calling "Herod's Palace" -- known that many of these sites are quite speculative. Bit yes, you can do all of this. Douglas Duckett
