Great view to the old city

Shared with hundreds of others, this viewing platform up on MOunt of Olives affords a great view of the old city. It is reasonably easy to find of you're driving/walking yourself and is also quite adjacent to the Garden of Gethsemane.

It's definitely worth it to have a guide or be a part of a tour to get a better understanding of exactly what you're looking at. The views of Jerusalem are STUNNING. You can walk back to the Old City, but it's a small hike. If the weather is good and your feet can manage, save yourself the 50-60 shekels and enjoy the process of getting back.

Gorgeous view of Jerusalem

Mount Olives is an old Jewish cemetery located outside the old city walls. We happen to have relatives buried there. This is a beautiful well kept, above ground cemetery. This is where you get a breathtaking panoramic view of Jerusalem. On clear days you see forever. Beautiful sight.

Great views and several churches to see if you don't mind walking

I walked up the Mount of Olives from the Old City in the morning. On the way, I was able to stop and see several churches including the Church of All Nations at the Garden of Gethsemane. Wear good shoes, bring a hat, and bring along some water and enjoy the views...

There are a few shops up top, but not much else, so don't plan on doing much shopping or eating on this visit.

I walked to the top from The Lions Gate entrance to the Old City. A very tough walk but very much worth it.
