A Private Tour in Jewish Old Jerusalem
Private tour of Old Jerusalem from a Jewish perspective
I will pick you up from our meeting point – in Jerusalem or Tel Aviv.
We start our tour of the Holy City of Jerusalem with a panoramic viewpoint from the top of Mount of Olives or Mount Scopus, telling the history of Jerusalem while relating to the three monotheistic religions: Judaism, Christianity, and Islam.
Enter the Old City of Jerusalem and visit:
Ramparts Walk – climb the Ottoman walls near Jaffa Gate and walk to Zion Gate. Enjoy a spectacular view of modern West Jerusalem and the ancient Old City of Jerusalem from above.
Visit King David’s Tomb at Mt. Zion.
In the Jewish Quarter, visit the Cardo-the Roman/Byzantine marketplace revived after 1967 and became an active hub of Jewish shops. Visit the Hurvah Synagogue, located in the center of the Jewish Quarter. Climb the terrace surrounding the synagogue’s dome, allowing us to see most of the Old City. Visit the “Burnt House”, a residential building from the Second Temple period. Hear about the divide and hostility among the Jewish community, the war against the Roman conquerors, and the complex moral questions that troubled the people at the time.
The Western Wall, or the Wailing Wall, is part of the retaining walls of the Second Temple on Mt. Moriah.
We finish our tour and drive back to the meeting point.
