Out of all of the places we visited, Jerusalem was my favorite! One of the reasons is that we got to explore different areas of this dynamic city over the course of a week. The other reason is because it is an absolutely stunning city!
Our first stop in Jerusalem was this overlook with a picturesque view of the old city.
From this view, it is obvious that there is a lot to see and learn about this city with historical significance to three major religions!
After some photo opportunities and discussion about the current affairs of Jerusalem, we reboarded our bus for the old city.
We entered the Jewish quarter at the Zion Gate.
There aren’t words to describe the feeling of walking under these ageless walls and emerging in the old city of Jerusalem.
This area is a beautiful combination of historic city and new world!
Our path ended at the famous Western Wall.
It was amazing to finally be here, watching people local and from across the globe convene at this landmark.
I wish I had an entire week to spend just here in Jerusalem. And, there is so much more to Jerusalem than just the old city!
We also spent time at…
The Shuk (Market)
Based on the amount of pictures I took, this may need a post of its own!
Ben Yahuda Street
