Ramparts Walk, Jerusalem

4.0
#17 of 81 in Historic Sites in Jerusalem
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.

    Who just dares in the morning on the city walls, can be summer here too well. The circuit that ranges from the Jaffa Gate behind the Damascus Gate, shows interessasnte perspectives and gives insights into the daily life of the inhabitants. You should pick up the ticket unbedingft, because on the road, an inspector comes suddenly.

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.
