Easy walking distance for old and new Jerusalem
Posted Jan 23, 2017
We stayed at the St. George for two weeks and found the location near Damascus gate to be ideal.The staff were excellent and went out of their way to look after us.We were easily able to walk to the old and new parts of the city.Breakfast was buffet style and outstanding.There is a carhire company across the road which is both cheap and efficient (Middle East carhire) They provided an English Language sat nav which was not too bad, although it will not take you thru' Arab areas ).After 3 days we had seen most of Jerusalem on foot, so a hire car was very welcome.We then went off in the car to visit the Israel Museum for which you need a full day, and the Biblical zoo which was ten pounds each and had every thing. That was a full day out too.The dead sea, Qumran, En gedi (full day and take a swim suit and good hill walking shoes) Caesarea , Tiberius and Galillee were great places to go, and we were able to visit (free entry) the Caprice diamond factory near Tiberius which was fascinating and gives 50% discount on jewellery bought in the shop.Petrol is about the same price as England.
