Someone has rightly said that if you wish to feel the real soul of Jerusalem then explore it on your foot and you will discover historical testimonies and cultural heritage oozing out of every nook and corner of the city. If you are planning to visit this holy city for the first time in your life we would recommend that you opt for the trip organizers that offer walking tours in Jerusalem and around the city to enable you to make the most of your stay in this beautiful place. Jerusalem has been mentioned so often in Biblical stories that most of us are familiar with it in some way or the other but being able to tread along those streets that you have read in the books will give you an experience that cannot be put into words.

Israel as we know is considered as a pilgrimage land for both the Christians and the Muslims, and every year legions of travelers come here to visit the holy sites and pay their respect. Apart from the pilgrims, there are also many visitors who come here to enjoy the coastal areas and beaches that present a relaxing holiday to these people.  When you spend your day walking through the famous historical areas and tourist sites in Jerusalem, you will be able to seep in the architectural beauty and aura of the place in a way that is not possible if you hire a cab or taxi.

As you walk through the City of David you will be able to witness the magnificent views of the Christian, Armenian, and Muslim Quarters. You can experience the breathtaking sights and sounds of the Arab souk market bustling with sounds and smells that will give you a traditional feel of the place. Go past the key tourist places in the spectacular Jewish Quarters dating from the Biblical times until the present day, giving you insight into the cultural beauty of the region.

Some of the other amazing tourist sites that you will come across during your walking tours in Jerusalem include the Mishkanot Sha’ananim, the first ever neighborhood in Jerusalem outside the walls; the King David Hotel that gives you an insight into the architectural wonder; Machane Yisrael, which is the second neighborhood in Jerusalem built outside the walls; Nachalaot that includes the home of Rabbi, and the exotic Shuk Mahane Yehuda.

Walking tours Jerusalem are sure to present you a one-in-a–lifetime opportunity to indulge into the historical beauty of the place but to ensure that you make the most of this trip, we would recommend that you bring some important items with you such as a hat, water and comfortable walking shoes. Remember to wear modest clothes when you are out for a walking tour in the city because you will be going past the traditional localities, quarters, and religious sites so pay respect to the culture and you will be showered with love and warmth in return. Overall if planned well along with a professional agency a walking tour can turn out to be a truly enjoyable way to experience and explore the beautiful city Jerusalem.
