“Birth of religions.”
Reviewed December 12, 2013

An amazing site to see. All of the sections, streets, shoppes and throngs of people. I assume in the summer, you can walk the streets because they are so crowded.

“Fascinating”
Reviewed December 12, 2013

There are many places to see. Simply walk, explore and you'll found the Via Dolorosa and other exciting site. Just walking around the old city was like being part of history. Worth it.

“Busy, bustling place”
Reviewed December 11, 2013

You may enter through the Jaffa gate, but try not to get caught up on the main street. Its mostly populated by touristy trinket shops. Don't be afraid to visit the Muslim quarter, it is the oldest, and most densely populated, but also the most interesting.

“second to non - JERUSALEM”
Reviewed December 10, 2013

where it all began, where u can see all religions in one ally Christian, Jewish, Armenian and Muslim , walk down the market to the western wall, u can feel the hollowness, smell of different foods, the colors, languages spoken around you.
A MUST SEE PLACE.
i recommenced public transportation, there is just no parking. most comfortable parking is at the Mamila mall, 5 minutes from the Jaffa gate,
