Orthodox Christians certainly have to visit the Mount of Olives, from where Jesus ascended! There are also a few Orthodox Monasteries & Churches, very important Biblically! The Mount of Olives Hotel makes perfect sense for your stay while there! xo~A

This mountaintop, gorgeous in its simplicity, provides an astonishingly beautiful sight of Jerusalem and the surrounding areas. It's an incredibly significant site for several religious and carries an aura of specialness to it, so that one can merely stand here and take in some of that spirituality. It's also a holy Jewish cemetery, having housed thousands of important people over the centuries. Don't rush through your experience here.

This is your first stop when visiting the old town of Jerusalem. The overlook is above the ancient cemetery, one of the oldest in the world. People interred here are thought to be first in line when Christ returns and leads folks into heaven. Quite a dramatic scene and very moving knowing you will be treading on holy ground. Nice introduction by our guide before driving down to the walled town.

The Mount of Olives. It conjures up pictures in our hearts and minds of Jesus praying and the disciples sleeping on that fateful Thursday. The Mount offers a view of the Old City that orients you to what you will see there.

As you look at the graves of Christians, Muslims, and Jews you are reminded what an international and interreligious city Jerusalem is.

You get very good views over Jerusalem temple mount from the top of the mt of olives. There are many churches here free to enter, but many close for lunch. You get a good view from the promenade outside the 7 arches hotel. There are also many taxis offering to give your tours of the area or drive you to the top.

What a view this was as the first stop for the start of our day. Wind and rain for this day, along with cold.

This place has been mentioned thru history for thousands of years.
It's a nice mountain, with nice views all around.
There are a few areas that you can park around and even do some shopping of local street sellers.

This is located outside the Old City of Jerusalem and is possible to go by foot even though it is not that near. This is a Jewish cemetery which is still in use and is a must see when in the city. The many coffins here is a sight to behold.

Nearly all tours and pilgrimages start from this spot because it affords an overview of the Old Town and the Kidron Valley with the Jewish Cemetery. For the amateur photographer, expect a few crowds during the day, but there is room to spread out and get the pictures. Do not forget to zoom and capture the cemetery below. Also the domes of the nearby Orthodox church are in view. A DSLR with a zoom lens oriented to scenic photography works well. Note: there is a fifteen minute walk available from the viewpoint down to the Garden of Gethsemane, but it is steep.
