    Required visit for anyone interested in learning about the Jewish People or specifically the Holocaust.
    Even if you visited years ago, the newer curated exhibits are much more accessible than the old museum.

    Amazing feeling being there.

    We were there on a Sunday: mass started 6am and ended 7am.
    The tomb opened right after the mass at 7am. People following the mass were the first to enter.

    Absolutely no lines at this time. Me and my wife could enter there twice with a 2min. maximum line.

    So the recommendation is to arrive early in the morning. Tomb opening time on Sunday: 7am. Mess start on Sunday: 6am.

    A holy place, visited by pilgrims such as we were, but this review focuses on the problems of photographing the site. Two primary issues are crowds - which means long waits for access and a short time at the site - and lighting. Regarding the lighting, plan on using high ISOs for exposures. As to the crowds, travel light - good use for a pocket camera - and plan ahead, pre-programming your settings so that you can grab a few pictures. Consider taking pictures while in line or just afterwards. And using flash may not be appropriate.

    The Temple Mount adjoins the Old City of Jerusalem. It is sacred to Muslims, Jews and Christians. The Temple Mount is a plateau. The Al Aksa Mosque is the third holiest site in Islam. The Dome of the Rock is quite fascinating, it is said that Mohamad rode his magic horse Barak to heaven, where he conversed with the Prophets. You can see Barak's hoof print. Orthodox Jews often pray on the Temple Mount, which is the site of the ancient Temple. By the way, if you want to enter the Temple Mount, it's best to make arrangements in advance.

    King Herod's Palace is a very beautiful historical place, east of Bethlehem, a place worth visiting. There is an entry ticket of 29 shekels per person.

    This is a mostly finished church with a small interior. The attractions are the plaques around the Church that are the Our Father written in many different languages-some languages that are almost extinct. they are beautifully crafted. There is also a small garden.

    The Golden Gate was sealed by Suleiman the Magnificent, because it was believed that the Messiah, also called the Annointed One by Jews, would enter Jerusalem by the Golden Gate. The Golden Gate, known to Muslims as the Bab el Rahmeh and Jews as Sha'ar Harahamim, lies just across the Kidron Valley from the Mount of Olives, where devout Jews are buried. It is said that they will be resurrected and ascend to Heaven at the End of Days

    This place is amazing. Our room was outstanding and the service was exceptional. The desk clerks were very helpful in summoning taxis for us when they were needed and making reservations.

    The location right across the street from the New Gate could not be more convenient.

    The Daily Mass (In English) was an unexpected surprise and do yourself a favor and don’t miss the Shroud exhibition.

    It was crazy and busy and loud, but a lot of fun and great shopping. Some very motivated sellers who want you to buy from their stores! 😁 Lots of competition and bargaining. Hang on to your purses! Fabulous food options as well! Not for the faint of heart or if you are claustrophobic. Great for purchasing spices, T shirts, jewelry, trinkets, purses, luggage etc.

    This hotel for pilgrims is incredible. When you walk in the door as a Catholic, you feel like you’re coming home. The building is absolutely stunning, very classic, and very tastefully decorated. The chapel is beautiful, and the artwork everywhere is wonderful. The staff is top notch and very welcoming almost everywhere. The dining room food is delicious and the landscaping is gorgeous. We also visited the attached exhibit about the Shroud of Turin, and it was exceptional. Finally, the location of this hotel is so convenient—right outside the New Gate to the Old City of Jerusalem. The two reasons I did not give this property 5 stars is because the staff at the rooftop bar was rude to our party, and it was impossible to get a reservation for some reason, even though our group was flexible on timing and they would have made a lot of money just serving us one drink. The other reason is because the first room my husband and I were given (room 306) smelled so strongly of mold/mildew that we couldn’t stay there. There appeared to be mildew in the shower. The second room we were given, 313, was still smelly but less so. Unfortunately, the toilet had trouble flushing and our shower head stand was broken. We also did not get our room cleaned at all during our two night stay. I think that was an honest mistake due to us changing rooms, but still, it would have been nice. Other than the rooms perhaps needing some work, and the rooftop bar inaccessibility and snooty staff, we loved our stay here and would definitely recommend it to any Catholic pilgrims to Jerusalem.

    Visiting Emmaus for a worship service with a pilgrimage group is a deeply meaningful experience not to be missed. Non-religious tourists may find it interesting for that importance but not a must-see. For Christians the story of how the disciples recognize the resurrected Jesus ‘in the breaking of the bread” is fundamental to the faith. So it is that lens they use to admire the ruins of the Byzantine basilica and visit the small museum dedicated to archeological finds and history. Without that perspective others may simply see a few broken stone walls and some faded mosaic remnants. Nevertheless, Emmaus has an aura of calm and peacefulness accessible to any visitor.

    As usual the authenticity of the site is supported by consensus over other possible locations. What is known is that the area has been fought over for hundreds of years ranging from battles of Joshua, Greeks, Romans, Crusaders, Ottomans even into the 1967 Six Day War. Richard Lionheart spent Christmas of 1140 here. The Basilica was repeatedly destroyed and rebuilt. Today the site and gift shop are reverently maintained by a detachment of the French Catholic Community of the Beatitudes. By car there is easy access from the main road from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
