All reviews jaffa gate steep steps old city northern section different perspective buy tickets eye view southern route uneven stones ticket office great walk bring water unique view bring your camera armenian quarter vantage point sunny day
Both parts of the walk start at the Jaffa Gate. We did the Southern section towards the Zion Gate first. We came down off the Ramparts at the Zion Gate and visited the attractions such as Room of the Last Supper etc. before walking back...More
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
The Ramparts Walk is another very rewarding activity in Jerusalem. You need a ticket, which allows you to do both the northern and the southern stretches. Along the narrow ramparts there are plaques which inform you about the sites and the sights. If you are...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

After paying for the walk at the shop near the Jaffa Gate, we needed to walk around the gate and to the left in order to find the entrance to the Southern Walk. There was a metal turnstyle and a person to check our tickets...More
YES - we used the ticket to go North one day and then South the NEXT day... just confirm with the ticket agent when you buy it how long it is good for but you may definitely do it on different days. It is tiring enough that... More
YES - we used the ticket to go North one day and then South the NEXT day... just confirm with the ticket agent when you buy it how long it is good for but you may definitely do it on different days. It is tiring enough that you'll probably prefer dividing it into 2 days. (Note that the ticket is single-use... so you cannot repeat the ramparts you previously enjoyed.)
