The city of David is a 3,800-year old site that’s outside the old city walls. Thanks to your expert guide you will trace the story of Jerusalem through the ages as you discover archeological excavations. You will see the first temple homes at the Royal Acropolis and visit the Citadel that protected Gihon Spring, Jerusalem’s main water source. You will also take an adventurous walk through Hezekiah’s Tunnel, then visit the Givati Excavation, where digging underneath a modern parking lot has revealed golden coins, a queen’s palace and Roman amphorae.
