The time to visit is when for the festival 'holiday of holidays' if and when a Muslim holiday accrues close to Christmas and Chanukah (Jewish). It's simple fun to walk up and down the narrow streets, watching different people, experience new aromas and flavors.

A place of co-existence! Arabs, Jews, Muslims&Christians, live together in harmony! Many good restaurants,coffe houses etc. Open markets as well. A very colourful place indeed. Every Sunday you can hear churches' bells' ringing which contribute a magic atmosphere.

Look no further - this is it. As a matter of fact, I'm willing to go so far as to say if you haven't visited the... More

The beautiful art decorating the wadi area is falling apart and is filthy. Lots of construction going on, without any regard for pedestrians. The various shops, kiosks, and restaurants are quaint.
