The premier shopping destination in Jerusalem is the modern Mamilla pedestrian corridor, a beautifully appointed open promenade connecting King David Street with the Jaffa Gate into the Old City. Here you will find luxury chains both familiar and exotic, along with an interior shopping center with some of the best jewelry in Jerusalem.
For more historic crafts, the Old City itself has some truly whimsical and very exotic shopping streets, like the ancient Jewish crafts market known as The Cardo, with its arcaded interior, and the Arab souk (market) just across from the Jaffa Gate. This is a classic Middle Eastern market, with vendor upon vendor selling decorative religious paraphernalia, scarves, clothing, jewelry and even footwear.
