The tour includes unique historical models as well as archaeological finds located throughout the citadel and the spectacular 360 view of Jerusalem from the top of the Herodian Tower.
The Mystery of Herod's Palace and the Kishle is another new tour route, inviting visitors to embark on a fascinating journey into the city's past, to revisit the great events and stories that shaped Jerusalem’s history. Discover the extensive excavations in the Citadel moat and the Kishle building, revealing secrets of the city from the days of the First Temple to the present time. Now, for the first time, the site is accessible to the independent visitor
