The mount of olives is so peaceful. Sit and think of the time of Christ, and look at the amazing view of the old city from there Visit the church nearby the Church of all Nations when you are there.

“One of the Greatest Views on Earth”
Reviewed July 6, 2013

If you are in Jerusalem and want to see the Temple Mount in all its glory, there no better place. There is also an overlook at the Hebrew University that is very good, but the view from near the Seven Arches Hotel cannot be beaten.
