Enter this partial reconstruction of the "High Street" of late Roman Jerusalem near the Hurva Synagogue in the Jewish Quarter. A number of columns have been restored, as well as buildings suggesting the form of Roman era shops. A large mosaic reproduction of the famous Madaba map shows how central this column-lined street was in its heyday. Today, this is again a street for shoppers. You will find souvenirs, ceramics, jewellery, and Judaica, among other things. The Cardo leads into the main souk (market) of the Old City. And if you're in the mood for real Roman dining, reserve a place at the Cardo Culinarium. Don't forget to iron your toga!
