Feel the weight of centuries of history in Old City of Jerusalem, officially designated as a World Heritage Site and appreciated as critically important to believers of the world's three major religions. According to the Hebrew Bible, King David conquered the city from its Jebusite inhabitants in the 11th century BCE. Since then, this urban settlement has served as the heart of the Jewish community and an integral site in Christianity and Islam. Visit all four quarters--the Jewish, Christian, Muslim, and Armenian quarters each boast distinct cultures, foods, and architectural gems. Find your way through the narrow sloping alleys of Jerusalem to visit major sites like the Western Wall, Church of the Holy Sepulcher, and the Dome of the Rock. Work out when and for how long to visit Old City of Jerusalem and other Jerusalem attractions using our handy Jerusalem road trip planner.

  • We really enjoyed wandering around for 2 days. Lots of great photo opportunities. People friendly although we were warned about being harrassed to buy, we didn't find that to be the case.
