A peek into 19th -century Jerusalem.
NileGuide Expert tip:
You can't get lost--ask for Yehezkel Street and you'll be directed back to the main street. Don't miss the Yemenite Felafel on Yair street.
Today the once grand mansions belonging to the Mousayyof and Samuiloff families have lost their luster, but the neighborhood itself is still a window into the 19th century.
Narrow streets dotted with small synagogues; some of the best bakeries and felafel vendors are tucked into the neighborhood, and the people-watching is almost unmatched.
