The Western Wall is impressive, but its greatness is truly discovered when you descend underground to the Western Wall Tunnels. The tunnels run along approximately 488 meters (1601ft) of the Western Wall, giving visitors a taste of the challenge that stood before Herod the Great during the biggest of all his immense building projects - the expansion of the Temple Mount.

  • The Four Sephardic Synagogues - Four medieval synagogues share a complex inside the Old City’s Jewish Quarter: the oldest, Elijah the Prophet synagogue, built in the 16th century; the Gothic-Spanish style Yohanan ben Zakai synagogue where Israel’s Sephardi chief rabbi is affirmed; the tiny Emtsai synagogue, built in between them; and the large Istanbuli synagogue, built to serve the community of Turkish Jews.

  • Lunch break in the Old City - (meal not included)

  • Hurva Synagogue - Founded in the 18th century, the iconic Hurva synagogue in the old Jewish quarter was destroyed in 1948, leaving only an arch against the sky.
