New! Old City Train to the City of David

The Old City Train takes guests on a fascinating and fun tour, from the Mamilla Parking Lot, through the Armenian and Jewish Quarters, to the City of David. Along the way, learn about heritage sites and the history of the general area.
Cost: 30 NIS.
On your next visit to the City of David National Park, enjoy a new attraction, one that is not even located inside the City of David, but is on the way to the site. Visitors to the National Park are welcome to ride to and from the City of David on the Old City Train, a fun and unique experience that takes passengers through the narrow streets of the Old City.  The train leaves from the Jaffa Gate, close to Mamilla and the Karta Parking Lot, and winds through the picturesque Armenian and Jewish Quarters to the Dung Gate, which is a few meters/yards from the entrance to the City of David. Visitors who book tickets in advance for a tour in the City of David may ride the train for a discounted price of only 10 NIS!. This fun train ride is perfect for families and kids. An audio guide offers fascinating tidbits about the history of the area and the heritage sites located along the route. So, before you enter the City of David to dive into the depths of the ancient city and get to know her up close, hop on the train and learn about the area around the City of David.  Behold the beauty of modern day Jerusalem before you set your eyes on its ancient beauty, in the place where it all began.
