During the 19th Century, as the Ottoman Empire weakened, more and more European empires and countries tried to get a little piece of Jerusalem to increase their influence in the region. The Nevi'im Street (Hebrew for "The Prophets st") is the perfect place to learn about this amazing chapter in the history of Jerusalem. We will see some of these interesting compounds: French, Russian, British, German, Italian, Polish, Romanian, American, Swede, and even Ethiopian one... all within walking distance from each other.
Itamar Ben-David has 14 years of experience as a tour guide in Israel, especially in Jerusalem where he lives. He has guided thousands of happy tourists from all over the world, and during Covid he founded the Israeli Virtual Tourism Association. Itamar has deep knowledge of the three Abrahamic faiths, History, and Archaeology. He is Jewish of Yemenite and Moroccan heritage, and if you'll be nice he will sing to you.

Itamar as always, gives a thorough and well thought out themed tour of Jerusalem. I really enjoyed this theme of the presence of other cultures and countries that make this a "salad" rather than a Melting Pot - if you want to learn about Jerusalem, take his tours. He is GREAT - and he will sing for you and teach you Hebrew words! So fun and makes you feel welcome as his friends.

I highly recommend visiting Jerusalem with Itamar. The depth of his knowledge about this special city for many is inspiring. I learn something new about a city I have spent a lot of time in, whenever I tour with him. His wilingness to stay on longer to answer questions is also very appreciated, although he also does try to keep up with questions during the tour. This inaugural "Game of Thrones" tour contained a lot of history and information, so I may have to repeat it to get everything in perspective, but that's not a hardship! Thank you Itamar!
