  • Wailing Wall - Western Wall

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Jerusalem Things to Do

    Western Wall is one of the must see attractions in the Old City and by far the holiest spot for Judaism outside Mount Temple. Located in Jewish Quarter it’s part of the retaining wall that surrounded the Second Temple(built in 538BC and destroyed by Romans in 70AD) so this is the closest place that Jews are allowed to pray to where the holiest site...

  • Bus or Taxi

    Jerusalem Transportation

    We had a rav kav card bought somewhere and had some money remaining when we went to Jerusalem. The money in the card cannot be used to buy any ticket in the local transportation network in Jerusalem. Whatever you want to buy, you need to use cash or credit card. We didn't know about this and just boarded the light rail. I thought since there's...

    Tel Aviv-Yafo Things to Do

    Jaffa is an amazing neighborhood - full of a very special vibe and diverse culture. I would recommend also to explore the southern part of Jaffa - Ajami neighborhood. Tiny streets, old Arabic buildings, lots of local noise and beautiful Midron Yafo Park! If you need any more recommendations about Jaffa feel free to ask! Or since we're living in the...

  • Dr. Shakshuka

    3.5 out of 5 stars

    Tel Aviv-Yafo Restaurants

    The place is supposed to serve authentic shakshuka - a layer of spiced tomatoes and peppers with poached eggs on top of it. What was served was tomatoes/peppers with one egg mixed into it and the other one, still raw (!), on top of it. Service was rude and the bill was too high (they charged more than what was written in the menue). Upon...
