The City of David

If you have a few days to explore Jerusalem, taking a tour of the City of David is a must. Located just outside the walls of the Old City, the site is the birthplace of Jerusalem and where King David established his kingdom. Excavations here are ongoing, but the fully excavated site of the Spring Citadel is open to the public and provides access to the Canaanite fortress and underground water systems, where you can tour the tunnels. For families traveling with kids, navigating the 2,700-year-old Hezekiah’s Tunnel is a fun way to experience the city and learn about its history. It is also possible to walk the tunnels from the City of David back into the Old City of Jerusalem to conclude your tour.
