The Mount Zion rooftop over the King David Tomb / Last Supper complex on Mount Zion is one of those great little secrets about Jerusalem. On exiting the Last Supper room there is a old sign in Hebrew and a viewpoint symbol that are easily missed.
A short climb will bring you to one of the best panoramas in Jerusalem.
There are several memorials commemorating the bravery of the those who fought and died defending the Old City’s Jewish Quarter and the associated fighting around Mt Zion in 1948.
Just soak in the views – the Old City, the Mount of Olives, the Judean Desert, and the New City. This is a short diversion taking no more than 5 or 10 minutes, but, incredible – a place to bring your camera. See our Mt Zion Album.
