This was a quiet location near the bus terminal and somewhere we you can walk and sit quietly. Lovely shop that is well worth visiting to buy memories.

This garden tomb was quiet and peaceful. It may or may not be the place where Jesus laid but what a message was given by the tour guide. Loved this site.

Yes, its easier from Damascus Gate - just go directly opposite the Damascus gate; and there are a couple of bakeries opposite, pick up their local bagel or two, its very nice and tasty.
