The Cardo, Jerusalem

(4.6/5 based on 320+ 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.

  • You will need a lot of imagination to visualize what this place is all about. Not much to see or experience the way it is.  more »
  • Visited on two different days - one sunny and bright, the other rainy and cold. Each was steeped in history - bring cameras and wonder - the excavation is wonderful and the renovations convey the area...  more »
  • Impossible not to be impressed with the beauty and historical content of this place, particularly if we are part of the current of Judeo-Christian thought.

  • 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!
