This really is the main attraction to Jerusalem. It is a bustling hive of activity with people everywhere. Take your time and enjoy what it has to offer. A nice glass of pomegranate juice and some souvenirs all add to the appeal.

I think walking through the Old City devoid of a map is the best way to go. Just wander and react. You will find people who are unique and kind in all of the quarters. Respect those who ply their trade in this city or...More

Hello J0andBrian The Garden Tomb is doable and it’s not as crowded. There isnt a long queue to get in and you could collect a self guided information from the reception. The Garden Tomb is at Damascus. Enjoy your trip

Hey, I am travelling to Israel for a week in mid June. We are staying within the Old City of Jerusalem, and just wondering what it's like at night? I've heard some horror stories of people feeling unsafe to walk around after dark, and we really don't want to be stuck in the hotel until the sun comes out. If anyone can help reassure me, I'd be really grateful. (I have been to Istanbul and walked out around midnight to the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia - 10 mins walk, and never felt more relaxed, it was buzzing with life - just wondering if the Old city will be anything like this?) Also, we have a jam packed itinerary (Nazareth day trip, Massada & dead sea, Bethlehem & Jericho, Caesaria and Grottos) but we will have two full days to spend in the Old city (Fri & Sun) will these be good enough days to explore, considering one is the Shabbat? Thanks all!
