There's Nothing Like Jerusalem

In downtown Jerusalem there are many old buildings from the earliest neighborhoods built outside the walls.  And there are signs on buildings telling what happened in the area, the building itself and about historic people who lived in the buildings.

Just wander around, especially the Nachalat Shiva and Nachla'ot neighborhoods.  Nachalat Shiva is near Zion Square.  The main streets there are Yoel Solomon and Rivlin.  Nachla'ot is near (or includes) Machaneh Yehuda, the open market, Agrippas Street, Betzalel Street and all of the connecting ones. 

It's like a maze.  But if you read what's written on the buildings, you'll learn an awful lot about Jerusalem and its history.
