Tickets are bought near the Jaffa Gate but, unlike us, buy a map as the walk is not all the way around. Some sections are shut off so you have to retrace your steps and if you come off the wall there are limited signs...More

Get your tickets near the Jaffa Gate. Due to time and being hot, we just walked the southern section (though the ticket covers the north also). It was great to walk this and see over the rooftops of the Muslim Quarter towards the Dome of...More

Two walks around the walls were a really good way to get a feel of the city and the outside neighbourhood. There are lots of stairs and cobbles as you would expect - some children doing the walk found it tough. We went on the...More

We went for this walk expecting to see something extra, something you could not (easily) see from inside or outside the wall. This expectation was at odds with reality. There was absolutely nothing extra too see, just a narrow path with unexpectedly many and very...More

This is a great way to see the Old City and surroundings from a less traditional perspective, by taking a walk along the ramparts (at the top of the wall around the Old City). You buy tickets near the entry to the Old City at...More
