When visiting Jerusalem, Mount of Olives must be visited. The view is spectacular & from a religious point of view, a absolute must. (Unfortunately the weather was not very good)

Such a great view of the city! Taxis will offer to drive you up and then try to arrange a subsequent tour...but you can walk up...it's a good hike, but not difficult. There is a well maintained staircase, or just walk the road. Bonus for trekking up and down? The next day you can eat all of the hummus you want...guilt free!

As we visited on a Sunday, most attractions were closed. The walk up the hill was a challenge. The church at Gethsemene was beautiful and full of mosaics. Mary's tomb was moving and worth a visit.

You need to visit this site. Lots of history and you will be moved. Just watch out for people trying to sell you things at the entrance.

I arrived at the Mount of Olives as the sun was setting. The Muslim call to prayer could be heard all around. Lights of the city were just being turned on and it was a very overwhelming experience. The view from the area is unbelievable. The next morning we went back for a different view.
