City of David - This site is just outside the Old City walls, where David set up his city, having captured it from the Jebusites. His son Solomon built the Second Temple on the site of the Dome of the Rock and expanded the city northwards but this was where Jerusalem started. The best way to see the area is to head for the City of David's Visitor Centre and take one of their guided walks.
I decided to pass on the tunnel and spent the time on the observation platform of the centre and wandering round the immediately surrounding area. This proved to be an excellent decision on my part as it gave me an hour and a half to sit and look and really absorb what was all around me. My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our visit.
