We did a day's walking tour (and we walked a lot). It was summer. It was hot. There is a lot to see and a lot of tunnels. Use a guide.

This is the main attraction! Such a treat to finally experience Jerusalem. Don't miss the Western Wall, the Stations of the Cross, and especially the Tower of David (my favorite)!

Learned so much history and culture by exploring the old city. My family and I did it on foot without taking up a guided tour. Would definitely recommend some kind of protection from the sun though, that's what really got to us. An umbrella or...More
