In the Old City, you can walk the streets where Jesus supposedly walked on his way to his crucifixion. Each station is numbered and some Catholics may want to kiss the wall at these spots. It was a very crowded holiday when we did it...More

For Christians, to walk the Via Dolorosa is to reimagine the story of Christ in its final Earthly stage. The walk is crowded with pilgrims from all over the world, singing, praying and touching sacred spots. It’s also lined with hawkers of everything from mango...More

Reliving the memory of Jesus Christ on the day of his crucification in old Jerusalem where it actually took place two thousand years back.Small or large no. Of persons move from station to station where Jesus walked/fell before being nailed to the cross.

Very, very crowded with religious pilgrims many of who became rather unchristian in efforts to push to the head of the line. Suggest you go early in the day to minimise the wait times. We gave up mid walk as you could see little other...More

A must-do when in Jerusalem. Located in the Old City, it's a walk through the path taken by Jesus before His crucifixion. Path is uneven, narrow & involves short ascending & descending steps. It has, however, become too commercialized & noisy with too many souvenir...More

I recommend you have a guide or some literature to point out what is where and what the back story of each station is, even if you have learned this in church.

Walking the Via Dolorosa - if you know your stations of the cross - was most interesting but very crowded. Probably best if you do this early in the day as it gets busier as the shops open and more tourists pour in to the...More

Moving to think where you are and standing. Expect huge crowds on pilgrimage. Very difficult to see all the stations but wait it out — you’re only here this time.
