The wall is so iconic, it was interesting to be able to walk along it the younger people (age 16-25) found it more interesting. You get a sense of the protection that it provides.

Not all that

The ramparts walk sounded great on paper, but in reality were a let down. Took the northern route from Jaffa Gate (as at the ticket office they said this was the prettier route) and it really only got interesting half way down the section. At that point we could see roof tops, the Dome...

The ramparts walk sounded great on paper, but in reality were a let down. Took the northern route from Jaffa Gate (as at the ticket office they said this was the prettier route) and it really only got interesting half way down the section. At that point we could see roof tops, the Dome of the Rock and the across to the Church of the Holy Sepulchre and over to the Armenian Quarter and King David's tomb. Nice enough but a some rather mundane parts had to be walked through to get there. The ramparts themselves are fine to navigate in normal sensible shoes (not in heels), in parts there are some steep stairs but anyone with a regular level of fitness should be able to to get around. This shouldn't be a high priority on the list of things to do in Jerusalem - I wish I'd visited the Tower of David instead as we could see that from the wall and it looked way more interesting!

A Bit Disappointing!

Both parts of the walk start at the Jaffa Gate. We did the Southern section towards the Zion Gate first. We came down off the Ramparts at the Zion Gate and visited the attractions such as Room of the Last Supper etc. before walking back through the town. Later we walked the Northern Section...

Both parts of the walk start at the Jaffa Gate. We did the Southern section towards the Zion Gate first. We came down off the Ramparts at the Zion Gate and visited the attractions such as Room of the Last Supper etc. before walking back through the town. Later we walked the Northern Section towards the Lion Gate & left the ramparts at the Damascus Gate. I have to say the views were not nearly as good as expected, there are better views to be had! You do need to be reasonably fit as there are a lot of steps both up and down and some of the steps are very high. My knees were complaining afterwards!! Do wear sensible shoes. I would only recommend doing this if you have plenty of time to spare.
