City of David- The Place Where it all Began

The night tours begin with a breathtaking starlit overlook from our “Beit Hatzofeh” lookout point, which emphasizes the unique, low position of the biblical City of David in comparison with Jerusalem’s Old City walls. An impressive 3D movie reveals the city’s magnificent past, followed by the guided nighttime tour. 

 
Your tour is accompanied by stunning lighting that illuminates new, interesting artifacts from biblical times. The tour continues to the ancient Royal Acropolis (Area G), where you will conclude with an artistic light show projected on the antiquities, telling the story of the City of David through movement and sound.
