JERUSALEM’S OLD CITY

To get to know Jerusalem, the first thing to do is start by visiting the Old City made up of 4 neighborhoods or divisions: Muslim, Christian, Jewish, and Armenian. It is recommended to visit the religious sites by wearing appropriate clothing that covers shoulders, knees, and even the head just to show respect to their faith and cultural traditions. In a way, it is even interesting to dress like them and a great way of surprising your family and friends on Instagram.

The walled Old City is accessible through the Jaffa Gate. Once inside, the best way of exploring it is to wander its narrow streets by following the signs on the walls. Another option is to download the free “Audio Tours of Jerusalem” app on your mobile phone which offers many walking routes and GPS maps. There are also official tours that visit the Old City’s main spots. Or perhaps the best way of experiencing this site is simply to get lost in it.

Main attractions

  • Tower of David Museum
  • The Shuk in the Muslim Quarter
  • Church of the Holy Sepulcher
  • Western Wall
  • Western Wall Tunnels
  • Temple Mount
  • Jerusalem Archeological Park
  • Rampart’s Walk
