Full description
Enjoy a panoramic view of Jerusalem, look out beyond the Jewish cemetery on the mount's slopes, drive along the Kidron Valley, see the burial tombs of Absalom, King David's third son and visit the Tomb of King David. Continue the tour into the Old City through the Zion Gate and into the Jewish Quarter to see a complex of four Sephardic synagogues from the 17th and 18th century.

Visit the Byzantine Cardo, once the main thoroughfare of the city, and see the findings of ongoing archaeological excavations. Pass the excavated foundations of an ancient wall which stood 2,700 years ago during the reign of King Hezekiah. Go beneath the present day streets to discover the 2,000-year old Herodian mansions.

Place a prayer note between the stones of the Western Wall. Marvel at the ingenuity of the Canaanites and Hezekiah who constructed tunnels to bring a water supply to the people within the city walls.
