I'm planning to visit Jerusalem in mid November. I'm travelling with my wife and 7 year old son. We are renting a car for the whole week and we are trying (whenever possible) the trip without any tours. We are catholic, so we are focusing in visiting biblical places.
Now in relation to Mount of Olives:
1. Since I have a car, is still better to get there by taxi?... or definitely better to leave the car at the hotel.
2. What areas do you recommend to visit for catholics in the Mt? are there any other things relevant from other religions that we should not missed?
3. I know November is the beginning of the winter, what time should I be there and how long should I invest in this place?
4. I was planning to visit the Mt on a Friday.. is it better on a different day? I already have plans to visit Bethlehem on Thursday, but if I move Bethlehem for Friday and to on Thursday to Mt of Olives, are there still buses to go to Bethlehem on Fridays?
