Visiting the Old City is extraordinary. The cobblestone streets and alleys are a narrow maze. They are filled with residents of numerous religions and tourists of every nationality. Vendors bark to sell their hanging wares. Sounds ricochet off stone buildings and archways. A different smell is around every corner. And it is impossible to recognize let alone tour every historic site. The best advice? Wander while soaking up this unique ambiance. Groups of two or more are safe during the day. The area is well patrolled by armed police. If you want a structured visit, hire a knowledgeable guide.
