Pictures : Jerusalm > Mount of Olives

Mount of Olives

Also great. I didn't do a guided tour, but did it with a guide book. You can get them at the tourist information shop in the old city; they're a bit expensive, but they contain nice pictures and well...what's the point of going, if you don't know what you're looking at? There are a lot of different things to be seen and some of them have opening hours. So, if you don't go on a guided tour, it might be wise to read the guide book properly before going. For instance, there's this big church from which you have a great view, but it's only open 3 days a week.

These pics were taken from just outside one of the gates of the old city (can't remember which one)
