Help, we are off to the old city in Jerusalem to see the kotel and do the tunnel tours. Can you tell me the best (and safest) place to park. My Dad (Israeli) has me worried! I was thinking of parking at Mamila and walking down but isn't sure that is a good idea...
Parking at Mamilla would be the easiest, and safest, but it means walking through the old city. Another option is to park at the first station, and take the free shuttle, which let's you off just outside the Dung Gate. 2 (19 hours ago)Shayna Levine-Hefetz:
Parking at First Station is a lot cheaper and the shuttle will take you to the kotel rather than Jaffa Gate which will mean a 20 minute walk to the kotel and the same walk (including many steps and an uphill walk) on the way back. 2 (19 hours ago)Natalie Joseph Billington:
Sounds great. Our tunnel tour starts at 4.15, will that be too late to get the shuttle back to first station? (18 hours ago)Natalie Joseph Billington:
Also, is there stuff to do at first station? (18 hours ago)Natalie Joseph Billington:
And thank you for your help (18 hours ago)Molly Adler:
The shuttle leaves from the far end of the parking lot. It was great, but had a hard time finding it at first and none of the shopkeepers seem to know about it! Good luck. 1 (17 hours ago)Deborah Bassuk Michael:

We waited a while for a shuttle back to the first station last time we used that option but it was midday. Maybe in the evening it will be better (14 hours ago)Nisa Levy:
Mamilla is good (13 hours ago)Naftali Lehrfield:
Rova Express offers many services within the Old City including; transportation of people within the Rova, deliveries, and assistance those that want to get to and from the Kotel. Rova Express is a private mobile transport that accommodates 3- 6 passengers. It allows those that have difficulties walking, the opportunity to go and be included in tours and family smachot within the Old City.

If you park at Mamilla you can either enter the Old City through the Jaffa Gate or walk a little way around the walls and enter through the Zion Gate which also takes you through the Armenian Quarter. You don't have to go through all the steps of the Jewish Quarter, but stay on the road near the ramparts (within the walls) and walk that way down to the Dung Gate. A bit gentler than all the steps, certainly on the way up or if you have a stroller/young kids. (4 hours ago)Rhoda Kagan:

Looking for recommendations for a great spa for a few midweek days in July. Can spa-goers recommend which are great and rank them? Carmel, Cramin, Breishit, or boutique ones? Thanks!
Diane Resnikoff Field:
Cheryle, we like Carmel Spa the best. Breishit is very lovely also but they do allow children which changes the atmosphere. We like Cramim the least. Special Occasion? (17 hours ago)Cassandra Dadi:
All are amazing hotels but Bereshit spa is not great at all. (16 hours ago)Sarah Fairweather Shamir:

Been to Carmel and Breishit. Carmel all the way. Not even a contest. If u can afford Carmel, it's not even a debate!!! (14 hours ago)Lawrence Feldman:
don't know if this is in the same league, but the Elma Hotel in Zichron is supposedly the lap of luxury, and they have a spa on premises:
