Jewish Quarter, Jerusalem

4.6
#2 of 9 in Neighborhoods in Jerusalem
Walking through Jewish Quarter, the part of the Old City controlled by Jews, enables visitors to weave through ancient history and consider modern Jewish life. The neighborhood, built over centuries entirely out of beige Jerusalem stone, is maze-like. It contains four historic and monumental synagogues among many smaller houses of prayer and seminaries, colonnaded Roman ruins unearthed in the center of the quarter, and the entrances to the Western Wall and the ancient Jewish archaeological sites nearby. Try to wear shoes with a lot of traction: the streets are also made of Jerusalem stone, slippery from centuries of footsteps.

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.
