Get your tickets near the Jaffa Gate. Due to time and being hot, we just walked the southern section (though the ticket covers the north also). It was great to walk this and see over the rooftops of the Muslim Quarter towards the Dome of...More

Not many do this but we did during free time. It is good exercise with rough cobbleand many steps however the reward is an overview of the old city that not many see. Behind the facade. The token is good for 24 hours so you...More

Bought our ticket to do the walk. We really only wanted to do the South Wall but had to start at the Fafa gate on the north wall. Some of the first part was OK but there were more tacky parts. As we approached the...More

Two walks around the walls were a really good way to get a feel of the city and the outside neighbourhood. There are lots of stairs and cobbles as you would expect - some children doing the walk found it tough. We went on the...More

We went for this walk expecting to see something extra, something you could not (easily) see from inside or outside the wall. This expectation was at odds with reality. There was absolutely nothing extra too see, just a narrow path with unexpectedly many and very...More

Walk on top of Jerusalem’s Old City Walls and see great views while learning about the history of the city, best to have a guide who can point out all the places of interest. There are some stairs but most people can manage the walk...More

This is a great way to see the Old City and surroundings from a less traditional perspective, by taking a walk along the ramparts (at the top of the wall around the Old City). You buy tickets near the entry to the Old City at...More

The Ramparts Walk is the castle-like walkway atop Jerusalem’s Old City Walls. The snaggletooth projections protected defenders against the modern-age implements of war: arrows. This reminded me the ramparts at Lisbon’s Sao Jorge Castle, when visiting last June. Like that stone edifice, this provides phenomenal...More
