JERUSALEM: The City Of David – Ancient Jerusalem

Jerusalem of Gold

 

Jerusalem did not originate within the walls that surround the Old City today. Indeed, the first Jerusalem was built on a narrow piece of land below today’s Old City, surrounded on three sides by deep valleys. When King David decided turn the Israelite tribes into one nation, he chose this piece of land as his capital. It has been extensively excavated and the finds – including a nearly 3,000-year-old tunnel – are among the most fascinating in the world.

Dear Aviva and Shmuel,
I want to thank you both for starting off our trip to Israel so well. Shmuel’s tour was insightful and thorough, and Aviva’s arrangements were smooth and helpful throughout. We returned to Jerusalem today with our museum hosts to see Yad Vashem and the Israeli Museum. We even found some extra energy to see the tunnels at the Western Wall. I am well aware that all of this is only an introduction to your fascinating country, but it has provided a great beginning. . . Beverly
