  • We loved walking down Ben Yehuda! The stores were open and the owners are inviting. It's also just a great place to walk around 
  • It will be one of the liveliest corners of Jerusalem (the nightlife is in Tel Aviv), but the shops and premises of this long road are one uglier than the other. Worth an evening pass (not on Saturday), to distract themselves from hieratic atmosphere of city tour.
