We are renting an apartment in the German Colony and we plan to use buses for our transportation for the most part. I know that I can also walk to many places and my husband and I have done that in the past. This time we will be with our 10 year old twins and I want to conserve their energy for the touring when necessary and in the evening I suspect they will be worn out.
I was hoping for some "on the ground" advice about taking the bus and walking in the most efficient way.
Specifically walking from the German Colony to the Jaffa gate. I see some routes on a map but it isn't always clear that those routes are walkable, ie. no sidewalks, hard to cross the street etc.
Also the most efficient way to walk toward the City Center?
Regarding the buses that go toward the old city,is the bus stop at the LRT Jaffa station? Is that where you get off to be closest?
When going to the City Center would you take a bus all the way? Bus to LRT and what are the most popular stops there?
We are staying at 4 Masaryk if that makes a difference although I think all the main bus stops are on Emek Refaim.
If there is a question I should have asked but didn't please let me know.
