Top 10 of Jerusalem

 
 
The Ramparts Walk

 The Ramparts Walk

Hidden in plain sight the Ramparts Walk allows visitors to get a better sense of the Old City.  The 4km walls are one of the most defining features of the Old City, and they are divided into two separate walks, the north side walk is the longer of the two and covers a larger area, from the Jaffa Gate (on the west side of the Old City) to the Lions Gate (on the east side, approaching the Dome of the Rock). The south side walk is shorter and ends at the Western Wall (or Kotel in Hebrew). Beginning at the Tower of David (on the west side of the Old City, beside the Jaffa Gate) and continues around to the south side of the city, ending in between the Zion and Dung Gates.
Yad Vashem
 Yad Vashem
 
The Jewish people’s living memorial to the Holocaust/Shoah is a deeply moving and a sobering experience.  Sometimes words aren’t enough to describe a place without actually visiting.  Exhibits range from the photographs and letters of the victims to their personal possessions along with one of the cattle trucks used to transport prisoners.

Machne Yehuda Market
Machne Yehuda Market

With over 250 vendors Machne Yehuda is a foodie emporium as well as Israel’s most famous market/shuk which offers an exceptional range of fruit and vegetables, specialty foods, olives, spices, nuts as well as meat and fish.  There is a variety of ways to experience this; a brilliant new initiative recently set up is called “shuk bites” you can take self-guided culinary tour with a taste ticket to sample its many flavours.

The Israel Museum

 The Israel Museum
 
A place that speaks volumes many and encapsulates history, culture and design all under one roof. The Israel museum is home to the world famous Dead Sea Scrolls along with thousands the other archaeological treasures many found in and around Jerusalem and Israel. Along with an eclectic mix of art from impressionist works from 15th – 19th century to modern art and everything in between.

The Cardo

The Cardo

The Cardo was Jerusalem’s main street 1500 years ago. It was a very wide street running through the heart (cardo) of the city.  It was originally build during the reign of the Emperor Hadrian but its colonnaded architecture is more Byzantine than Roman, but as you walk through your imagination takes over and you can probably still feel the thoroughfare of times gone by.  Today it is now home to Souq Khan al-Zeit, or Market Inn of the Oil.
Mammilla Mall
Mammilla Mall
 
It’s outside the Old City Walls but in recent years this once poor district has been turned in to the city’s smartest shopping area.  The Mall was designed but one of the most fashionable architects Moshe Safdie.

The Western Wall
The Western Wall

Place that still stands in the Jewish world, it is not the temple it’s self but one of the retaining walls and all that remains of the King Herod’s second temple.


Church of the Holy Sepulchre
Church of the Holy Sepulchre
        
You don’t need to be religious to feel the magnitude this Church holds for so many people. Its draw is obvious and history is vast and interesting.
