You can enter the Christian Quarter through the New Gate, although there doesn’t appear to be much going on from that entrance. You pass a few shops, hotels, churches and such, but it almost feels deserted. But continue walking to the Church of the Holy...More

Most are heading to the Church of the Holy Sepulcher. Many junk shops. Several good artifact shops. Well worth the wander. Fifth station has what is reputed to be best Falafels in Israel.

The history everywhere in Jerusalem is just astonishing and this really is a wonderful find in the centre of the city that joins the artery of the city. You really do have to go and see for your self!
