The City of David in 60 Seconds

View the landscape of ancient Jerusalem from several breathtaking vantage points on the Armon Hanatziv Promenade. Descend deep underground to the remnants of the lower aqueduct, which was built two thousand years ago to channel water to Jerusalem. Use your flashlights to take a closer look at the power of this amazing water system. The aqueduct no longer contains water and is completely dry.
