Old City, Jerusalem

This is the most historic region of Isreal. It is a mix of Jewish, Muslim and Christian religious sites. It is easy to get lost because the streets and passages are narrow and seldom straight. The Old City is always crowded with residents,merchants and especially tourists. It is a must visit site for any Christian and an especially holy place for Jews. We took a side tour to Bethlehem to see the place of Christ's birth.
