We enjoyed very much the ramparts walk as it gives a different perspective on the Old City with its wonderful views. You cannot do a full circle but it is split in two so important you do both sides, each with its distinctive entrance.Your entrance ticket is valid for two days.

It is not the most important thing to visit but if you have time, it is a nice way to go from Jaffa gate to the Dung gate. But you have to be in a good shape and not to be afraid of vertigo...

Tickets are good for two days. You get great views of the city, but you better have good knees to handle all the stairs. At the end there is a small turnstile gate, so if you are a very large person, you might have difficulty exiting or need to return the way you came.

Interesting way to see the Old City and the area surrounding it. A bit strenuous and walking on uneven stones.

This is a lovely way of seeing a large part of the old and new cities of Jerusalem. I walked round on a dry day with my seven year old son and we had a great time. Be warned the ticket office is cash only and the walk ends in the poorest and possibly least welcoming part of the Old... More

This was on my personal must-do list and I wasn't disappointed. The view of the new city juxtaposed with the Old City was phenomenal. It offers a perspective of the Old City from a higher vantage point so more can be seen. Be sure to buy tickets, for a nominal price, at the place two doors down from the rampart... More

Ramparts Walk simply means walking around the old city on the walls surrounding it, which is perfect to get to know the locations of everything in the old city. Also because of the high vantage point you get to take really nice pictures from above. You would feel like 007 in Spectre walking on the roofs of random households. There... More
