Not to be missed, you get a full panorama view of the old city. My husband and I had been here once before in Feb. We came early morning before crowds , just know Jerusalem is cooler in Feb. That morning had to even wear...More

I imagine this location is amazing if you're religious and want to experience places a written about in your religious books. Apart from that there is nothing to see here as such, a few scattered churches with very little in the way of artifacts, architecture...More

We walked from Damascus gate - it is tough in the heat but definitely doable if you're in decent shape. Most people took the road up but we found stairs (near the cafe) which seemed to go through a more residential area. If you go...More

Mount of Olives features one of the best views of the city. But understanding its location and importance is what makes it truly interesting. Going with a guide is probably best. Just below is the Garden of Gethsemane and the Tomb of Mary. But dress...More

No fee.
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
