Ever notice how exhausted you can get after even a short visit to the Old City? Yet the entire area within the walls is only one square kilometer. Perhaps what wears out visitors is the congestion: The Old City’s historic sites, markets, shops and homes are packed as closely together as sardines in a tin can.

This Pessah, why not try a more relaxing tour of the Old City? Head for the rooftops – for spectacular views, fascinating historical tidbits and good, clean air? And it’s all free.
