The view from the Mount of Olives is impressive. You get the best view of Jerusalem with the Temple Mount. Be prepared to swat away many eager souvenir sellers who surround you as soon as you prepare to take in the view. From here, you can walk down to see the Tomb of the Virgin Mary, the Church of Mary Magadalene, the cemetery, and the Church of All Nations. It is a lovely view. Don't miss it on your next trip to Jerusalem.

Make sure your guide takes you here -to see the most spectacular view of Jerusalem. You will have an amazing time overlooking the whole of the historic and modern capital of Israel. Best to go with a guide,but walk to the park of Gestaname from here

Fantastic views across the valley to the Eastern Wall and Temple Mount, below are thousands of Jewish graves with stones on as they believe stones are forever not like flowers that will die.

What a site to visit. It is high up in the mountain and overlooks the City of Jerusalem and you can see almost everything. It looks as if Jerusalem is a model. The vantage points allows you to see the Golden Gate where the Messiah is supposed to enter Jerusalem. You can also see the Dome of the Rock clearly, the site where the Jewish Temples were built. There are street hawkers at the mount and there is also a gentlemen with a Camel that will charge $10 US for you to get on the camel and take a picture.

The Mount of Olives affords a great view of the area between the Mount and the Old City. It's worth the trip just for the view.
