We truly enjoyed this walk and while we had been to Israel a few times we never knew of this walk until a friend told us. The Rampart walk is a great way to get one of a kind views of Jerusalem and the Old City. The walls were first built in the 16th century and are at times challenging with steep steps and stairs. If you are a good walker you will have no issues here, very young children or those who have trouble with stairs should stay away. There are two ways to enter the walk. I suggest you take the one that is a little harder to find but takes you from Jaffa Gate to Zion Gate and lets you off near Dung Gate. From there you walk down the street/hill and you are very close to the Kotel (Western Wall) and the Jewish Quarter. There is a small entrance fee. Make sure you ask where to find the one that takes you to Zion Gate as we almost started on the other one as it is easier to find. Bring good walking shoes, sun block and water as once you start there is no getting off unless you back track. There is a bathroom before you pay so I suggest a stop there and bring a water bottle, The walk will give you lots of great views and is fun and interesting to see this old military fortress walkway. I have read on line where they say this is dangerous with out of control kids and people trying to sell tours. Do not listen to this and read other reviews as this is an enjoyable walk and experience and something a little different to do.
