  • The souk occupies several streets in the heart of the old city of Jerusalem (especially in the Muslim Quarter and a little Christian quarter). The small shops open more often directly on the narrow street and sloping. There are shops supply, the drugstores, clothing, of the household appliances, in short, just about everything, but also Arab crafts and religious items. A walk captivating in the ancient Near East, while paying attention to the crowd and erratic markets. Of course, there are often bargain in shops.

  • In the Arab quarter and going up to the Damascus Gate, local craft shops (so much silver and gold enough), small restaurants with falafel, shawarma, pomegranate juices and sellers of ugly shirts, there is also this. Not up to the Grand bazaar of Istanbul, but the structure of the Arab market, covered, with the shops-stores, which open to the right and left of the narrow streets is perfectly presented.

  • In turn among the narrow streets of ancient Jerusalem, you must make a stop in the souk of the Muslim Quarter; beautiful colors and the endless succession of small shops and stores that sell mostly items of pseudo local crafts and bric-a-BRAC. To avoid small objects made of gold jewellery (14 K) or worse archaeological artefacts or antique coins, if you are not experienced in the industry take a rip off is not difficult. Beautiful instead the little bars where they sell delicious Pomegranate juice or coffee roasters where you can buy excellent roasted coffee to take home (excellent scent). A separate discussion for spices, which you're better off buying in small market (where does not take dust and germs), for gold is better than a jewelry store in downtown where the prices are the same and the warranties are safe.
