Excellent tour of tunnels under the old city by Naphtali with Viator. He is a world of knowledge and we highly recommend. Visiting the places where Jesus Christ walked is life changing for all religions.

It is a visit that everyone should do. There are many tours, free or paid that explain all about the buildings, churches, paths. The place is kept clean and all signs are in English. many stores are located inside the old city, with many options...More

What an amazing city. We were lucky that we had booked a great guide - Itamar Ben Davis (look him up). He brought the city to life with its complex history across 1000s of years. It’s a really interesting place that brings all our history...More

Jerusalem’s Old City is steeped in an eclectic mix of history, culture, art, architecture, colours, sounds, food and traditions! No review can do it justice. You have to experience it for yourself.

This is what you came for. Wander through the four quarters (Armenian, Christian, Muslim, Jewish), grab a falafel or shwarma sandwich, go see the Tomb of the Rock, Church of the Sepulchre, Western Wall, and bargain for some handmade trinkets.

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!
