The Jerusalem Archaeological Park includes excavations dating to the Second Temple Period (first century BCE and CE). A guide will take the group across the Southern Steps of the Temple Mount, beneath an Herodian arch, through an ancient marketplace, and across the rubble that remains from the Roman destruction of the Temple in 70 CE. Other ruins date from the Byzantine and Arab periods.
A full-day Second Temple tour might also include a visit to the tunnels beneath the Western Wall of the Temple Mount. These tunnels reveal the lower levels of the walls which still remain below today’s ground level.
