We'll be coming from Petach Tikva in the morning (early June) and I'd like to avoid the worst of the rush hour traffic. I prefer taking 431 and entering J'lem via French Hill. Does anyone know when traffic lightens up? Since we'll be in J'lem until 11 p.m. I don't want to set out before then. I'll park in Mamilla, so the car won't be in the sun all day. Maybe bus or taxi to the Kotel?
I'd like to do both the Temple Mount and the Tunnel Tour - the only tours that day are 9.00 (too early), 11.30 and 16.30. Does anyone have the current hours for the Temple Mount?
