We were with a tour group so we had a guide to point out the marked stations of the cross. Would not have liked to search for them. Yes, it is crowded, but this city belongs to the locals and they also need to make a living. Merchants were not aggressive so they did not bother us. You need to look for black disks with Roman numerals carved on them which indicate each station. Some are directly next to each other, some at churches. For me, the beginning where Christ was condemned was very moving. We went during Ramadan and observed many Muslim women buying foods for that evening’s meal. They did not want their picture taken. So be respectful of the locals. To see the last stations in the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, I recommend going at 5 am when the church opens in order to get right in and have quiet reflection and prayer.

Wall to wall markets

It is difficult to share where you are walking and it's Biblical importance when there are wall to wall markets throughout.

A must!

As a Catholic, walking on Jesus' steps on his final day, through the Old City is a lifetime experience. Bring your Rosary and pray your way through the city towards the Calvary, stopping at the Stations of the Cross. Some are tiny chapels, sometimes open, others are just a sign on the wall.
