Ramparts Walk, Jerusalem
(3.9/5 based on 260+ reviews on the web)
Discover the city of Jerusalem from a different perspective with Ramparts Walk, a walking tour of the Old City walls. Enjoy a 1 km (0.6 mi) walk on the ramparts, stone walls built by Suleiman the Magnificent in the 16th century, and take in the views of the historic buildings, lively streets, and city surroundings that are inaccessible from the ground. Walking on the ramparts at Temple Mount is prohibited, so you won’t be able to complete a loop around the city. See Ramparts Walk and all Jerusalem has to offer by arranging your trip with our Jerusalem itinerary builder.
