NileGuide Expert Says:
Guided tour off the beaten track in the Old City.
- Step back into Jewish history as you walk for 2-3 hours through the Christian and Moslem Quarters of the Old City that were Jewish neighborhoods prior to 1948. Visit the Flower Gate neighborhood; the small Kotel, Beit Wittenberg, Beit Dolgin the Galicia Courtyard and several other off the beaten track areas.
Learn about the people and institutions that populated the alleys and courtyards of the Old City in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Climb to the rooftops to look over one of the most fascinating and contested pieces of real estate in the world. Hear the stories of the pioneers who rebuilt Jewish life in Jerusalem. Be sure to bring a hat, water and a camera for this unusual walking tour.
