  • This gate, which also is known as Lion's Gate, is at one end of the Via Dolorosa. Is not too large or busy, I crossed to the Mount of olives, a few hundred meters from there. Accesses the Muslim sector of the old town.

  • Unless you're some kind of gate fanatic, there's not much to see. There's lion decorations on the walls, but otherwise nondescript. Overrated  more »
  • This gate is nice, but way far out there. It is definitely not worth the long walk to it unless you are arriving or departing from there.  more »

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.
