Travelling increases one's self-awareness and broadens your view of the world, and there's no better way to seize a panoramic scenery than standing on a high elevation, from a distance, overlooking the entire city. Go at your own pace and admire the scenes / cemetery / churches of every direction. There's an audio guide to get a firm grasp of... More

We visited the Mount of Olives with a tour group of Israel. The view from the top is amazing. The chapel at the top is small, but we could (barely) fit our entire group inside (there were almost 60 of us). As a Christian, the location holds significance. If you aren't a Christian, the chapel may not be worth visiting,... More

To walk along this place with its views and history was a blessing. Need a guide to tell you about it all, it's importance and history

This cemetery goes back hundreds of years, and has buried there some of the holiest and revered leaders of the Jewish people.

We came here descending via Dolorosa and then climbing near Ghetsemane Garden. The views over Jerusalem are magical and you can see from here a beautiful sunset. Hebrew Cemetery is huge and even if we are in the Palestinian side, I did not feel any fear linked to terrorism.

We went up to the top for beautiful views of Jerusalem. Our children hiked down the Mountain and really enjoyed walking where Jesus walked. Very beautiful.

The top is occupied by At-Tur neighborhood of East Jerusalem with mostly Muslim population.The Jewish Cemetery on the Mount of Olives is the most important Jewish burial place and people buried here are supposed to resurrect first after the end of the world according to our...
