    This memorial to the 6 million debunks any and all Holocaust deniers. This a "must see" for all who think they all there is to know about the Holocaust as well as those who know veryy little or nothing at all.

    The Holy of Holies! Definitely visit OldTown Jerusalem every day you can while in Jerusalem to immerse yourself! You can pray again and again over all your issues fully and without haste! You can visit the wonderful shops that have the best signature pieces for your home or jewelleryware, and most precious gifts you could ever buy! Don't rush! I came back almost daily while in Jerusalem! It was my go-to place! Just love it! xo~A

    My husband and I enjoyed visiting the museum. We took the archeology tour with Michael. He taught us so much!
    We enjoyed the first floor of the museum tramendosly. We'll cover the rest on another trip.

    This is a must if you come visit OldTown Jerusalem. And along with this, you should definitely visit the Temple Mount (when it's open)! I visited both along with the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, so what is most special to Jews, Muslims & Christians for the full experience of Old Town Jerusalem!

    And what was most special of all, is that My Special Jewish Friend in My Holy Mission Global sensed when I prayed for him at the Western Wall! Simply Amazing! It definitely is powerful! xo~A +Q-S/

    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

    The Church is the shelter to Christ's crucifixion and burial sites. It protects the Golgotha rock where Jesus was nailed to his cross, died and also the place where he was buried before resuscitating. It has a very spiritual meaning to Christians, and the Middle Eastern vibe of the decorum makes it all the more so special. However, the way the place is administrated (you can read about it in any guidebook) means it's almost dereclit in places. It can also be very crowded and queues to visit the Tomb of Jesus can strech over an hour. Do not hesitate to come back at different hours of the day as the light can change the atmosphere quite drastically.

    I liked Mahane Yehuda more than some of the other markets in Jerusalem and Tel Aviv. It was wider so much easier to walk through and a little less chaotic. I did not view it as a tourist trap. Yes, it was a good place for tourists but it was also a good place for Israelis to shop for food and household needs. It was also near Jaffa St and Ben Yehuda which are also good shopping areas. I actually was unable to find some of the touristy souvenir items I was looking for. I wanted to purchase some spices and found that even when you say a specific amount, you will be given far more than you want. Be ready to bargain and tell the vendor that you don't want so much. You will not be insulting them because this is how they do business.

    This peaceful, beautifully maintained garden is the perfect place to reflect on Jesus Christ’s death, burial and resurrection.

    The Garden Tomb is a place for Christian worship and witness.

    Staff are very welcoming and knowledgeable.

    This was divine! Came again & again to the weeping rock.... It is best to go by foot, and take it slow; it's a totally different experience!

    Excellent experience to walk thru tunnel. We had bright headlamps which helped greatly. We took our time and had a good size group. No rush. Just enjoy the sights.

    We did the three hour English tour which included Hezekiah’s tunnel. We were with our 19 and 20 year old girls. The tour guide was great. However, we really felt that you could read about the City of David ahead and read the signs at the site and do it on your own. The movie at the beginning was great and the water tunnel was a favourite of all of us but the tour wasn’t necessary - there is not much to see and it’s long (that’s how our teens felt especially). But don’t miss the tunnels!

    Popped in here to see the light show on Saturday to find out the museum was free that day until 16:30. It is basically open ruins of king herod’s Jerusalem palace and great views of the city, though some of the stairs were challenging for my 70 yr old mom. It was an unexpected pleasure to meander through the ruins with very few people there!

    Skip the light show- it’s uninformative, and mildly artistic I guess, but not worth it in my opinion.

    One can sense that this is Holy ground upon which we walk..... Even though the Muslims believe it belongs to them and the Jews, that it belongs to them... we, Christians know that this is holy ground of Judeo-Christian tradition, where Solomon's Temple was built to worship the Triune God Almighty, Who Christians worship!

    This just has to be done by foot, carrying a cross from the very Garden of Gethsemane to Calvary and the Tomb of the Holy Sepulchre! This is the single most important part of our pilgrimmage journey!
