This was divine! Came again & again to the weeping rock.... It is best to go by foot, and take it slow; it's a totally different experience!

The Gardens themselves are relatively small and unimpressive, and unacessible, they are fenced to prevent tourists to stroll amongst the trees. The olive trees themselves are absolutely amazing, and the meaning of the place to Christians makes it a very special place to visit. The access is very easy from the Old City, it is free but can be packed with visiting groups and tour busses. From the Gardens, you can walk up alongside the hill to hace a wonderful view of the Jerusalem remparts.

Beautiful and quiet place to pray. Our group was lucky to be able to visit a private side of the garden.

The peacefulness of olive trees which have existed for hundreds of years. Yet, so significant when considering the historical steps of our Lord Jesus Christ. A must visit.

This is supposed to be where Jesus was arrested before his crucifixion. In any event, there are some very old olive trees and it is free to get into.

What can be said. JESUS walked here. 2000 year old olive trees. What a feeling to just be here. It is a treasure!

Again another place that is pretty verified to be where Jesus walked… it is smaller than I thought and, of course, marked off so that you look more at the Garden than walking amongst the trees which is understandable to protect the area. We did not have crowds and we got to be there pretty much alone. In regular crowded times, I would go very early to have the place more to myself,

Visiting the place, made me want to cry. It felt like Holy Ground. I wish I could have stayed the whole day.

This is a significant biblical site to see but it is not as impressive as I had expected. Trip advisor requires 100 characters but there is not much to say. It was a block with some olive trees. Not very impressive to see but has a great deal of biblical significance.
