Jerusalem Old City

The Old City is a walled section of less than 1km² that is located right in the heart of Jerusalem.
The Old City is home to many of the most famous religious sites in the world, including the Western Wall, the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, and the Dome of the Rock.
From here you can then move on to each of the four quarters; the Armenian, the Christian, the Jewish, and the Muslim Quarter.
