By car:
If you are coming in a private vehicle, it is important to know that it is hard to find parking near the Western Wall and the City of David. Therefore, we recommend coming to the Karta Parking Lot and the Mamilla Parking Lot located near Jaffa Gate (from there, you can come by foot or with a taxi)

By foot:
For those interested in arriving by foot from Jaffa Gate (Karta/Mamilla Parking Lots) to the City of David
After you enter Jaffa Gate into the walls, continue through the paved stone plaza and before the entrance to the marketplace, walk to the right, continuing with the road toward the Kishle (Police Station)

Continue walking with the road leading to the walls of the city, pass the Zion Gate and the Jewish Quarter parking lot, and continue down the road until the traffic circle at the entrance of the Western Wall. At the circle, turn right toward the Dung Gate and exiting the gate, turn left. Descend, about 200 meters and turn right toward the entrance to the City of David, with the large gold harp above it.
