My sister and I went to Israel to see my son, her nephew, who is a Lone Soldier. We loved the Old City, and went almost everyday of our week visit. The food is exceptional, and all merchandise (not food) prices are up for negotiation. I would recommend avoiding the Muslim Quarter. Soldiers and police are everywhere, and we felt... More

Be sure to allot a day for a good visit to Old Jerusalem. Not good for wheelchairs. Good walking shoes and cover your knees and shoulders.

We visited Jerusalem for the first time in April 2017 during the Passover/Eastern festivities. A unique life experience. The diversity of the old city, its smells, its people of faith. People from all over the world searching and tasting the meaning of life. Although middle of April, it was already very hot and crowded. It is worth to visit each... More

Beautiful city. A must see if you are in Israel. The history is amazing. There is so much to see you could easily spend more money than a day.
