To experience the steps of Jesus, where they arrested Him and then ultimately led him to the Sanhedrin who brought him to Pilate who then had Him Crucified is amazing. YOu walk in History, you walk in The Treasure Trove of Christianity. Real Christianity,not the fake Christianity of today. I felt like I was there with Jesus. I recommend this... More

Great place to get a panoramic view of Jerusalem! You'll see the golden dome, golden gate. Very touristy.

This was by far my favorite area in Jerusalem. We went when there were no crowds or tour groups. Some of the sites were closed, but that did not matter to us. We saw what we wanted to see. This is where I actually felt the Holy Spirit upon the location and myself .

I wish we could have spent more time here. The Garden of Gethsemane is amazing, and so peaceful. If you go to the top of the Mount, overlooking Jerusalem, there is a very kind man with a camel that will let you take pictures with his camel (for tips of course), which makes for great photos overlooking the Dome!

If you wanna go by foot it is so long and exhausting and by taxi so expensive. Entrance is 10nis and it is too expensive because you don't see anything worth the trip. Disappointed:(
