Here is the most historical place with the great city view. The Mount consists of 3 areas of high ground from which steep roads descend to the valley.

Hiking up he Mount of Olives can be difficult for some. It is pretty steep and can be slippery if it’s wet but once you’re at the top you have an excellent view of the Old City and beyond. My partner and I visited on...More

Must see - offering fantastic views of Jerusalem. For the way up to the old city it could be challenging but there are taxi's around. For genuine taxi services in East Jerusalem contact Suleiman on 052 - 4856142.

Stunning place, full of mystery and history. I visited it everyday in Jerusalem, speciay at night. To be there at night, when all is quiet and pray and meditate, to my Catholic soul, it was the best way to end the day. A cab fare...More

You must experience the Mount of Olives for many reasons, but primary among them for me was the view of the Eastern side of Old Jerusalem, amazing and breath taking. Be prepared to pay for the use of the bathroom a dollar or a shekel....More

There's a bus from the Damascus Gate at the Sultan Soliman bus terminus which goes up to the Church of Ascension/Mount of Olives.
Bob and I are in our late 50's and will be visiting Jerusalem for the first time in late October/early November of this year. We both have always wanted to visit the Holy Land! We were hoping to be able to renew our marriage vows somewhere in or around close to Jerusalem (Mount of Olives, or elsewhere). Bob is Jewish and I am Catholic. This might be difficult given our mixed faith situation. We did not want to do this at Cana (many seem to want this location). We have been in contact with a Messianic Rabbi who will perform a ceremony for us. Since a Church or synagogue is out of the question in Jerusalem, we were wondering about having the ceremony in a public location. Is this possible, given our situation? There would only be the Rabbi, Bob and I, and two witnesses present. Are there Holy sites where this could take place without causing disruption or controversy? We would be grateful for any information or suggestions you may have! God Bless you for your help.

Here's a suggestion: Contact the folks at The Garden Tomb and ask if it would be possible. It is a very serene peaceful location operated by a non profit group and may well be the location of Christ's burial. Look up... More
