The Cardo, Jerusalem

(4.6/5 based on 300+ 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.

  • 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!
