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.

Testimonials
Our two-week trip to Israel was one of the best experiences of our lives. Shmuel knows the country like the back of his hand and takes you not only to everything you want to see but to fascinating places you haven't even heard os! We saw a more complete Israel than any of our friends on regular organized tourist trips. Shmuel taught us a great deal about the geography and history of the places we visited. He also has a great sense of humor, is a lot of fun to be with and picks great places to eat. We could not recommend more highly and more enthusiastically seeing Israel with Shmuel as your guide.
