  • 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.
  • Very beautiful and white
  • This is one of the most over looked greens the old city has to offer. You walk through the charred remains of structures which stood before the destruction of the second temple. The detail that has survived provides incredible insight into the time period.
  • Fantastic. When I saw the sign for an archeological museum, I figured it would be an array of potsherds, like I've seen before, even in the Tupperware Museum, But the stairs lead down to a residential neighborhood, probably lived in by Kohamim, Temple priests, who wanted to live close to their job. Because they went to the Temple every day, they needed to immerse in a mikvah every day, and some or all had their own mikvah, built to the same dimensions still used today. I wasn't looking for it, so I found it, but you may have to ask someone for directions. It's just a block east of Churba Square and the Churba Synagogue on the less busy street. You can see it in 15 minutes, or you can spend an hour, imagining you're on your way to visit friends.

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.
