  • Literally enter the world of Second Temple period Jerusalem before the Roman destruction of 68 CE. The lifestyle of elegance and of ritual purity fused together becomes clear as you walk through home after home. There is a brief glimpse at First Temple period remains in the first hallway's display cases. Allow 40 minutes. A must visit.
  • Blow the street of the Jewish part of the old city you will see this..great and must do
  • Very interesting. A guided tour is a must though.
  • A really spectacular find right in the Old City. Very easy to get to and fun to explore. It is well presented archaeology with English language signs. Also very cool on a hot day. Very worthwhile stop on a tour of Jerusalem.
  • Overly valuable for its historical info

Where to stay in Jerusalem

Although it lacks a big selection of mid-range options, Jerusalem provides plenty of choices in the top-end hotel category. The Old City contains the bulk of Jerusalem's small hotels, inexpensive hostels, and religious hospices, all of which appeal to budget-conscious travelers. West Jerusalem offers additional options in the form of guesthouses and bigger hotels, some of which boast five-star ratings. If you just need a bed, consider a youth hostel, where you can choose between private and common rooms with Wi-Fi included.
