The City of David is the birthplace of Jerusalem, the place where King David established his kingdom, and where the history of the People of Israel was written. It is within walking distance from the Old City of Jerusalem and the Western Wall, and is one of the most exciting sites in Israel.
The City of David is an archeological park that tells the story of the establishment of Jerusalem, its wars and hardships, its prophets and kings, and the history of the Jews during Biblical times.
The remains of the city are present in the ancient stones and the thousands of shards that cover the pathways between the buildings.
Pass through the underground tunnels through which the city was conquered and residents fled. Go down to the hidden spring where kings were coroneted. Walk in illuminated darkness through the water of Hezekiah’s Tunnel, where water has flowed since the time of the prophets. Join the mysterious, magical journey between ancient shafts, walls and fortresses at the City of David, the place where Jerusalem was born.
