Following two devastating wars and 20 years of enemy occupation, the Jewish Quarter of Old Jerusalem was reconstructed with great attention to harmonious architectural detail. The highlight of the quarter is the excavation of the Cardo, the ancient Roman market street.

It is Israel! Holy sites and ancient stories live right here. This is a place for all ages to honor what they believe and treasure. Our family felt true pride in our heritage and secure in our future.

Although I have been to the old city many times I have rarely been to this part of the city which is a shame cause it was very interesting and informative.

To walk through the Jewish Quarter on the way to the Western Wall is a must; with stops at buildings and ruins which could be over 1,000 years old.

So, you’re going to the Christian and Arab and Armenian quarters, you should finish the jigsaw. Plenty to see: ancient synagogues, excavations, a very old market, great food and ice cream, and the uniquely Jewish perspective.

There are so many sights to see in this quarter. We entered along the Western Wall, or also called the Wailing Wall. Men to the left, women to the tight. Our Gate1 foot tour then took us into the quarter where we found shopping galore...More

No trip to Jerusalem is complete without visiting the Jewish Quarter on the way to the Kotel (Western Wall). It is a step back in time and you will find yourself wandering and gazing at the amazing alleys and architecture.
