4.7/5 based on 260+ 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.

  • The Jewish Quarter is one of the highlights of Old Jerusalem. It is a must to see, especially Jerusalem being the capital of the Jewish State of Israel nowadays. 
  • The original dug up main road the romans built, Just one side of the road is excavated, and still -huge. Had shops from both sides. Sewage holes and huge columes
  • The western "Cardo" of ancient Jerusalem was exposed in the 1970's. It proved to be a main axis in Jerusalem in the Byzantine period. Today parts of it functino again as commercial areas. Being so, the "Cardo" is one of the best places to go shopping in the old city of Jerusalem.
