Should you consider visiting the Zedekiah's Cave and would like to get your money's worth, either do your own research on the significance of the place or try to see if they offer tours or come with a tour guide (admission fee 16 NIS). In one of the caves, the Masons held their meeting (an attraction factor for some).
Although there are posted signs, without background stories and facts its just a big hole in the ground and a cool reprieve from the heat. Otherwise, the only impressive things about it is that it still stands considering the the 1/2 million ton weight of the city above it.
Should you decide to visit, on a day with few other visitors, note the fading traffic noise and the sound of water droplets as you descend into the cave and are transferred into a different historical period. As you continue your descent, notice the section where the paths divide on your left - turn around and notice an old staircase leading someplace in the sectioned off part. TIP: bring a flashlight as the cave is only lighted in areas open to visitors but it is also cool to see whats in other parts that are otherwise dark. When you reach the "tears fall" pause by it for 30 seconds to absorb the significance of the place or for a moment of quiet contemplation.
NOTE: There is a combo ticket that includes the Caves, Ramparts Walk or the Jerusalem City Walls (definitely recommended) and a few other attractions... definitely sold at the entrance to the Ramparts Walk which makes it a good deal if you want to see as much as you can.
