You buy your tickets from the ticket office by Jaffa Gate. It is a great way to see the old city and get your bearings. There are steep steps and not for the mobility challenged. Whilst we were there, the northern section stopped at Herod's...More

As a licensed tour guide, I guide the Ramparts often. It is a unique view of the southwest corner of the Old City. You see mainly the Armenian Quarter and look out above the Sultans Pool Valley and then on the Mount Zion hill and...More

This walk is memorable and starts here, but ends near the Kotel (Western Wall). It's nice to have a guide to learn more about the history of the Outer Walls themselves and all the wars the Jews had to fight over the millennia.
