Entry to the Citadel (Tower of David) includes two audio tours around the open site but no museum. They are both reasonably informative, despite some thudderingly obvious statements. Highlights include the stunning panoramic view and aluminium models of the site through the ages (including a poignant representation of Golgotha at the time of the second temple). It’s also pretty atmospheric and when we went, delightfully quiet. I’m afraid I couldn’t get very excited about the various walls in the Kishle. It’s worth a visit early on to get your head around the origins of the city but paying the standard ticket price of £40 for 4 adults without the museum seems a bit steep, but that’s Jerusalem for you.

Popped in here to see the light show on Saturday to find out the museum was free that day until 16:30. It is basically open ruins of king herod’s Jerusalem palace and great views of the city, though some of the stairs were challenging for my 70 yr old mom. It was an unexpected pleasure to meander through the ruins with very few people there! Skip the light show- it’s uninformative, and mildly artistic I guess, but not worth it in my opinion.

It was unbelievably fantastic, and I don’t need to do it again. TIPS From the entrance, keep turning right and going up the steps until you reach the windy flag draped top- for the best view of the entire Old City.
