Jerusalem's Old City is now more differently-abled friendly

Nov 26, 2019 15:27 IST

The Old City of Jerusalem is now more friendly for differently-abled tourists and visitors. In order to improve accessibility, the Jerusalem Development Authority along with the Ministry of Tourism have revamped streets in the Muslim, Armenian and Christian quarters of the city making it easier for differently-abled visitors to navigate. Hand-railings have been installed along staircases, and explanatory signs have been put up. Audio tours for visually impaired tourists will now enable them to experience the beauty of the Old City. Being a UNESCO heritage site, Jerusalem's Old City is the most visited place in Israel, with over 10 million tourists visiting the city annually.
