Historic Walking Area
Feel the weight of centuries of history in Old City of Jerusalem, officially designated as a World Heritage Site and appreciated as critically important to believers of the world's three major religions. According to the Hebrew Bible, King David conquered the city from its Jebusite inhabitants in the 11th century BCE. Since then, this urban settlement has served as the heart of the Jewish community and an integral site in Christianity and Islam. Visit all four quarters--the Jewish, Christian, Muslim, and Armenian quarters each boast distinct cultures, foods, and architectural gems. Find your way through the narrow sloping alleys of Jerusalem to visit major sites like the Western Wall, Church of the Holy Sepulcher, and the Dome of the Rock. Plan your visit to Old City of Jerusalem and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Jerusalem vacation trip planner.

  • Probably the best city in the world to visit for all religions and interests. Churches, synagogues, mosques from most western religions. You can relive history from over 2000 years ago. A modern safe ...  more »
  • It is an inevitable trip if traveling to Israel. Draw attention to the colors, smells and landscapes different from three religions that coexist, not always peacefully

  • Fantastic place, just like the whole old town area.
  • The old town is very good. Just don't forget to bring his card. We have forgotten and very long blukali long and narrow streets as in the maze. We went there in early June and has already been freakishly hot. Take plenty of water and panamku on the head. Market and crowds dissipated after 17.00. The wailing wall is staggering. Do not forget to insert the wall paper with desire and go back from her walking backwards, otherwise wish won't come true. Temple of chic, you can walk everywhere. And Yes, the entrances to all places in the old town-free. Prohibitions on photo not available anywhere else.
