Daily tours are available of these quarters including the Western Wall and the archaeological digging sites in and around the City of David. Tunnel tours below the Wall and inside the Old City are also available via pre-booking.
Today, Jerusalem is a stark combination of “new meets old “with hip restaurants and a bustling night life. Take a trip down to the revamped “Tachana”(train station) and browse through fashion boutiques and quaint brick-a-brack stores or opt for a drink on “the beach”, an artificial sand laid beach in the center of the complex. The Mamilla Mall is an open walk through two story Mall set across the backdrop of the Old City wall and boasts a stunning collection of boutiques, art galleries and restaurants to enjoy.
Chutzot Hayotsrim, the artist’s boulevard, is a great outing for those looking for new artistic talent or a special gift to take home. Take a trip to Machaneh Yehuda Market and take in the aromas of this multi-cultural melting pot of spices, ethnic foods, fresh produce and souvenirs. Do not eat before you go as the modest eateries hidden away inside the market serve some of the most delectable foods and you will find it hard not to try some of them.
Depending on the time of year, Jerusalem offers extra special attractions such as the Formula 1 Grand Prix Jerusalem and The Festival of Lights where the entire Old City wall is lit up with a spectacular display of images as you walk through the holy city.
Your journey begins here!
