Really wonderful view ! Try to go on a sunny day and you won't regret it ! It is a bit crowded (lots of bus bring people here) so you'd better come early

I would put this on the must do list for a Jerusalem visit. There is ample parking space. It provides a great panoramic view of Old Jerusalem that includes a great deal of the wall, the cemeteries and landmark spires, minarets, domesand other buildings.

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.
