Come Discover Ancient Jerusalem at the City of David

The Hasmonean Aqueduct is closed until further notice

Join us for a fascinating guided tour that includes panoramic views of ancient Jerusalem from a number of strategic vantage points aboveground while following the water that once flowed to Jerusalem through the remnants of the Lower Aqueduct deep beneath the ground.

The new Blue Stone Trail, named for the 28 blue tiles spread along the route, was created through a cooperative effort by the City of David Foundation, the Jerusalem Municipality and the Israel Antiquities Authority. The project, recently inaugurated on the Armon Hanatziv promenade in Jerusalem, uses spectacular paintings and artwork, as well as original songs, to trace the story of how water flowed to Jerusalem in ancient times.

 (The walk is in the aqueduct without water)

The project is presented in partnership with the City of David and the Jerusalem Municipality.
