(340+ reviews on the web)
Landmark
When touring the Jewish Quarter, take a stroll through The Cardo, a restored Roman-era passageway, fringed by a colonnade along its whole perimeter. Built during the rule of Hadrian in the second century, the street was partially excavated and reconstructed, beginning in 1969. Enjoy a short walk and admire the well-preserved columns and buildings, or browse the shops for jewelry, art pieces, and souvenirs. Plan your The Cardo visit and explore what else you can see and do in Jerusalem using our Jerusalem vacation builder.

  • Upper end of the gift selection in the ones city. Pleasant shopping area. As nice as the shops are though, I think there is still a bit too much of the mass produced gifts.
  • Beautiful scenery. Great food shops.
  • No matter your faith (or lack thereof), when you stand there and really think about all of the history that happened in this spot, it's hard not to feel awe.
  • If you happen to passing by, this is a great place to check out
  • Exiting and historical place. You can add actually "feel" the people walking here 2000 years ago.
