Best place to see the remains of biblical Jeruslaem.
NileGuide Expert tip:
Lots of steps and walking.
- Major archaelogical excavations over the past decades have uncovered a large part of the City of David. Canaanite walls, ancient water tunnels from King Hezekiah's time and remains from First Temple times are all on view at this site.
From the observation point high over the Kidron Valley, to the depths of the Gihon Spring, the only natural spring serving the old city of Jerusalem, a visit to the City of David will expand your horizons about Jerusalem's long history.
During the three-hour tour, you'll be walking in the footsteps of the biblical kings and prophets and gain an appreciation for the lifestyle of the ancient Israelites who populated the area before the construction of the First Temple. Bringing you back to the 21st century, is a fascinating 3D movie that will enhance your understanding of the area.
