Perhaps Jerusalem’s most iconic and important sight, the Western Wall, or as it’s sometimes called.
The Wailing Wall, an ancient limestone landmark constructed in around 20 BCE, is the only surviving remnant of the Second Jewish Temple which was destroyed by the Romans in 70 CE. Situated in the heart of Jerusalem’s Old City, the wall is considered sacred by the Jewish People, an enduring symbol of their faith and history and a major site of prayer and pilgrimage for nearly 2000 years.
From the Western Wall to the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, visit the most iconic and important landmarks of Jerusalem’s fascinating Old City and learn about the area’s rich history from your expert guide, on this small-group, half-day tour.
