This is a wonderful village for a visit when you need to get away from the crowds. The village atmosphere is pleasant and the street vendor ice cream is wonderful. You will enjoy the churches for a time of reflection.

After over 40 years we returned to one of our favorite hidden gems to discover many huge tourist buses and flag-led groups. So we avoided the crowds in the quaint alleyways and the beautiful Norte Dame de Sion Convent. It was simply enchanting again.

We went to the Ein Kerem area on a recommendation and were pretty disappointed. Maybe it was overhyped to us, but found it to be not worth the trip. Mala Bistro was ok. Everything else strictly forgettable.
