The Cardo, Jerusalem

4.5
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.

    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.

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.
