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.

“The Jewish Quarter is magical”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2013

Visit the beautiful cobbled streets of the Jewish Quarter and the Cardo. My mother grew up here and had so many beautiful things to tell about this area. There are beautiful synagogues that you don't want to miss and many amazing and magical sights. It's a must to visit when you're in Jerusalem. Don't miss out on the highlight - the Western Wall. I've written a review for that too, so don't miss it. Lots of tips there.

“Fascinating”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2013

This really was a fascinating experience. Be sure to act appropriately and for women to dress modestly with shoulders and knees covered and no cleavage showing.

“Souvenier central- authentic cuisine!”

Make sure to grab a falafel sandwich and a delicious ice-cream.

Great place to buy souvenirs, as well.

Close to Wailing wall, too.

“Walk slowly to soak it all in”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2013

Lots to see in this historic area. Shop the shops, but pay attention to the archeological environment. Visit the historic and newly rebuilt Hurva synagogue. This is an area mixed with the old and the new where people live today.

Walking through history -- past and present. Fascinating to observe the diversity of cultures/religions in the Old City.
