At the dawn of the first millennium, Jerusalem was known internationally for its beauty and grandeur. Thanks to recent excavations, one can now walk the streets of Second Temple Jerusalem and be amazed by its splendor. Join us on a fascinating tour of recently revealed sites. Be amazed by the excavation in the Central (Tyropoeon) Valley where we will walk through a section of the Second Temple period drainage channel to the highlight of the tour--the monumental foundations stones of the Western Wall at the foot of the Temple Mount. From there we will climb and exit onto the magnificent road where the Jewish pilgrims walked, two thousand years ago.

Come join in the excitement as Ancient Jerusalem comes to life before our very own eyes.

The walking tour is approximately 1½ hours long and is appropriate for people of all ages and children aged 4 and up.
