Begin your day at the Mt. of Olives Observation Point for an excellent visual and spiritual introduction to the city, ancient and new. View the Temple Mount, theCity of David, the Church of the Holy Sepulchre and more, as the vista spans the length and breadth of the city.
Spend time at the Western Wall, one of the last vestiges of the Second Temple complex built by Herod some 2,000 years ago and thus the holiest spot in the world for Jews.
Excavations in Jerusalem's Jewish Quarter have revealed a wealth of finds from the First and Second Temple periods. See the sites and enjoy the special ambiance of this renewed part of the Old City along a wheelchair accessible route developed by the Jewish Quarter’s Center for Tourists with Disabilities (02-6283415/6). When you call them, ask about the wheelchair-friendly route through other quarters of the Old City around the market and the Church of the Holy Sepulchre.
In the evening, enjoy a drive through the New City to view some of its landmarks, including the Israel Museum’s Shrine of the Book, where the Dead Sea Scrolls are housed (open on Tuesdays until 9:00 P.M.; partially accessible), the Knesset, and the Supreme Court.
