From here, you have an overview of the old Jerusalem. You can take great photos and selfies from here. Morning is good as the sun will shine on this whole scene.

Yes. It may look far but actually very well doable. Take eg the Lion gate, go to Getsemaneh and directly behind Getsemaneh on the right hand side a road goes straight up to Mt Olive with the fantastic views.
