What a wonderful opportunity to spend two days in Jerusalem this week. The weather was unusually warm and sunny for November. Our tour included some of the special highlights of Jerusalem, a truly amazing city. We visited the Tower of David Museum of the History of Jerusalem, climbed up on the city walls for the Ramparts Walk, toured the Jewish Quarter of the Old City, walked the length of the Western Wall in the Western Wall Tunnels. All of these special sites are within the walls of the Old City of Jerusalem.
Jerusalem is more than just the Old City, and we didn’t skip the newer parts of Jerusalem. Some of the highlights are the open air Machane Yehuda Market, the downtown pedestrian mall on Ben Yehuda Street and the newly renovated Israel Museum.
Two days are certainly not enough to see everything, but enough to get a taste of what Jerusalem has to offer. Certainly enough to know that you have to come back again and again.
