  • Jerusalem is a walking city. With weather that's great for walking for at least nine months of the year and layers and layers of history spread over several neighborhoods and hills, get your walking shoes on and get a good view of Jerusalem at your own pace. The Ramparts Walk around the walls of the Old City is the number one pick for walking through Jerusalem. From atop the 16th century walls of Jerusalem you'll see the city from a different perspective. Consider joining organized walking tours on any Saturday of the year. It's a great way to see unusual parts of the city and meet a fascinating array of fellow Jerusalem travelers. Every guide will translate into English for you and provide insights into the sights. One off the beaten track neighborhood that's great for walking is the Bukharan part of the city. An array of synagogues and alleyways built in the 19th century make this a fascinating look into Jerusalem. For more relaxed walking options, head for Sacher Park or Independence Park in the center of town. To see the center of Jerusalem on foot, follow the pedestrian mall streets that are closed to traffic and are lined with boutiques, cafes and benches to relax and people watch. Start in Safra Square and walk through the Russian Compound toward Ben Yehuda Street and on up to Schatz and Betzalel Streets. The Machane Yehuda Market is another good place where walking will make sure you experience the real Jerusalem. Cross Agrippas Street and into Nachlaot, a vehicle-free old Jerusalem neighborhood that's fun to wander around.
