The Cardo, Jerusalem
(4.6/5 based on 280+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • A neighborhood to walk and get lost in the streets full of history. A bit annoying at times by the amount of people, traders, tourists, religious.

  • In the Jewish quarter, it is a great place to stick for a while to enjoy Roman history, modern life and sightseeing all at once.

  • Place is great but you need to be ready for a good long walk. It would be 5 stars if there were less people bothering you to buy useless things. I know it's their living but you can only buy so many postcards, bangles and horse rides.
  • A great walk from damascus gate. A lot of history to see on the way. Very informational
  • Amazing piece of history, literally "the heart" of Jerusalem. Beautiful Roman architecture and definitely a location to visit when you're visiting.
  • Cool shopping centre
  • Love seeing ancient Roman rode. Cool excavation!
