Visiting the Old City is fun, getting a good tour guide is a must if you want to learn about what everything is and get to visit the most amazing places! Also my tourguide Bar is very respectful and objective about all religions which is a must... I think! He's very professional and explained the Cardo very well and answered... More

An old street with columns that make you feel as if you are walking down the streets of past centuries. There is a covered section of the street with many stores. I was able to purchase some fine jewelry here. If you walk on down the street you will see the original paving stones of the street and a reproduction... More

One level down is the best shopping but also some of the best preserved history and people living right over top.

I loved this section of The Jew Quarter. I really felt the legacy of the place. Our guide from Don-Tours told us a fantastic story about the life and times of this location when it was a busy marketplace to those who resided in Jerusalem. It was wonderful to walk where others have walked for thousands of years!

You will need a lot of imagination to visualize what this place is all about. Not much to see or experience the way it is.

Visited on two different days - one sunny and bright, the other rainy and cold. Each was steeped in history - bring cameras and wonder - the excavation is wonderful and the renovations convey the area well. Walking and some steps - close to shopping and a must see part of the trip to Jerusalem.

Not a lot to see here, but with a guide it's more interesting. Takes just a few moments to walk by and you'll get a sense of what it was like to live here eons ago.

If you like to haggle, this is the place for you! Being a woman, I'm not received as well as my husband, who can usually get things 75% less than first quoted. He gets a thrill from getting a great price on any souvenir you could want, even if you don't want to haggle, it's fun to get lost wondering... More

This is a shopping street (market) that is currently below ground. Back in the day of the Romans it was ground level but the city has been rebuilt so many times its now below ground.
