Amazing archaeological remains from the Canaanite, King David and King Hezekiah periods


We'll explore the origins of Jerusalem and we'll learn why and how King David conquered this place from the Jebusites 3000 years ago and how it became a royal and the capital city.
A key site to understand why Jerusalem is so relevant to jews and christians.
The walking tour could be either through the dry or water channel. On the way we will see the differences between the canaanite and Hezekiah's tunnel and the remains of King David's palace.

Great walking tour to start grabbing a good knowledge and experience Jerusalem from the beginning.
