The ramparts walk is split in two, but for 18 shekels each you can do them both over two days. The entrances are by the Jaffa gate. And there are some steep steps including a spiral staircase to negotiate. Well worth a visit.

It is somewhat of a difficult walk if you do the entire wall. Wear good walking shoes, bring water and a camera for some really great pics.

Great for some different shots of the dome and some views on the alleys... but be aware that some of the accesses are closed so you basically go up, take a few pictures, and go down. Not much of a walk...

Get a whole new perspective of the Old City of Jerusalem from birds eye view. Photography from this vantage point is amazing. Great activity for the whole family.

The ramparts are mostly narrow walkways that are high above the city...there are flat areas, but also MANY steps, most of which are narrow, about 12-inches deep and require using both handrails (if provided). We took the long route and my FitBit showed 40-sets of stairs climbed...and my legs felt like we walked that many stairs! Overall, one does not... More

We walked the walls over two days. It is a lot of steps and you have to be careful because it is not a smooth service that you walk on. We went one way on one day and then used the ticket to go the other way the next day.

As long as you have good knees and ankles this is a great walk with many wonderful views.. Some steps and of course old rocks make it a bit hard for some but it is well worth it.

We enjoyed walking the wall and being able to look down into the neighborhoods. Great views across Jerusalem. There are a few places where folks uncomfortable with heights might not like.

Great views, but careful if you're afraid of heights....we walked around and saw so many great things - had a family member as a guide which was great.
