“The Best View”
Reviewed 20 June 2014

Walking down the Palm Sunday Path to the all the churches on the way was one of the highlights of the trip. The best view of the City is from the Dominus Flevit church. Beautiful, but steep walk.

“Interesting History and Site - However this is not a mountain”
Reviewed 19 June 2014

This is alright, good view, big cemetary, on a hill with a few olive trees. Nothing to write home about.

“Scenic & picturesque”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

While it's a little difficult to picture this place in the days where Jesus once walked & preached now that it's so gentrified, it's nonetheless a serene & charming place to sit & ponder those days. As I was with a tour group, we didn't get to spend too much time there, regretfully.

“A view unparalleled”
Reviewed 16 June 2014

Climb up from the Church of Gethsemane (steep climb!), to behold a breathtaking view of the Kidron Valley up to the Old City and of course the Dome of the Rock. The walk up is 100% worth it.
