Owner description: Following two devastating wars and 20 years of enemy occupation, the Jewish Quarter of Old Jerusalem was reconstructed with great attention to harmonious architectural detail. The highlight of the quarter is the excavation of the Cardo, the ancient Roman market street.

Clean and spacious and well tended, you can tell the people who live here take pride in their living and work areas. The prayers and singing can be heard throughout the quarter and is exactly how you picture Jerusalem to be.

The Jewish quarter is a must see for people of all relgions. The hustle and bustle of the market is incredible to watch and you can get great deals if you bargain.

In the Jewish Quarter prices are more than double comparing to the rest of the Old City.
Even food or restaurants are much more expensive.

It is a wonderful experience to go through "the Quarters" of Jerusalem! It is like a maze of alleys, with shops and vendors all pedaling their wares. If you see one "quarter", you must see them all!!!

The Cardo is from Roman times when they destroyed the 2nd Temple. There is no specific tour of this area but a must see when visiting the Old City. Ask a shopkeeper , if you don't have a guide and they will be happy to tell stories about the surroundings.
