Ramparts Walk

Beginning at the Jaffa Gate this walk is not only a sublime bird’s eye view of the intriguing city but also an interesting perspective into it. While the domes and spires rival each other for the skyline, Mt. Zion rises regal and mighty to the south, the bustling East Jerusalem will be to your north. The walk is divided into two parts – the northern walk descends at New, Damascus, Herod’s or Lion’s Gate and is the relatively longer one; the southern walk descends at the Zion gate. Comfortable shoes and lots of water is a must.
