The day long Jerusalem walking tour takes you through some of the most interesting and exciting parts of the Old City of Jerusalem and the City of David, including Underground Jerusalem.
On our Jerusalem Walking Tour we will encounter some of the more recent archaeological finds in the Old City, from the 2nd Temple, Roman periods, and medieval times as well, bringing different periods of this ancient city to life. We start the Jerusalem walking tour with a dramatic panoramic overview of Jerusalem, both new and old, from the top of the Mount of Olives, from where one can also see the Temple Mount Esplanade of the old city. From the Mount of Olives we travel by bus along the Kidron Valley to view the Garden of Gethsemane and the City Walls.
We drive to Mount Zion to visit the tomb of King David, located in the ground floor of the remains of an old Byzantine Church. The upper floor of the same building holds the place traditionally seen as the Hall of the Last Supper.
We enter the Old City’s Jewish Quarter via the Zion Gate, walking through the Cardo, an ancient pathway constructed in Roman times. In the Jewish Quarter will shall visit four different Sephardic Synagogues dated from the 16th Century.
We will then get to know several other exhilarating excavations from the City of David – this is the area that was captured and constructed by King David some three thousand years ago. Here we will get a sense of the geographical significance of the ancient city of Jerusalem, as well as acquaintance ourselves with the significant water system that was constructed back then.
