  • The Tower of David gives its visitors a great sense of history during the Ottoman Empire. You can walk around the walls outside. Inside you can view a pictorial history of the era.
  • We were to the night spectacular show and it was very well organized. We were with our daughters, 10 and 5 years old, and they were hypnotized by the show. Very recommended.
