We start the day with a panoramic view from the Mount of Olives Viewpoint , and perhaps make a “shehecheyanu” blessing.
Viewing the old city, we try to assess Jerusalem in the First Temple period and the Second Temple Period.
We then head to the City of David , “Where it all began“!. We watch a 3D movie at the visitors center, and review the finds that may testify to the location of King David’s Palace , and King David’s Tomb .
We can also walk along the newly opened Herodian drainage channel (more then 500 m long!), which ends right in front of the Western Wall , in the complex of the Southern Wall Archaeological Park , which includes also Davidson Center .
After a visit to the Western Wall itself we head up to the Jewish Quarter . After a lunch break we explore the Jewish Quarter sites such as the Temple Institute ; the Temle model at Aish Hatorah Yeshivah ; the Cardo ; the Hurva Synagogue ; the unique Karaite Synagogue and Talith Workshop ; the Biblical era “Broad Wall” ; the Herodian Quarter ; the Burnt House ; or the model of First Temple Jerusalem (Ariel Center ).
We could also sign up for the tour of the Western Wall tunnels , including the great new attractions of the Virtual Tour of the Second Temple ; Visit King David’s Tomb Mark on Mount Zion as well as the President’s Room ; walk along Mea Sheaim , or drive to the western part of the city, to tour the Israel Museum , visit Herzl Museum and Mt. Herzl , or tour the Holocaust National Memorial at Yad Vashem .
