Lonely Planet review for Kidron Valley
Historically the oldest section of Jerusalem, the Kidron Valley has archaeological remnants that date back more than 4000 years. This is the site of the legendary 'City of David', which was actually a city long before David slung any stones. There are also a number of graves and tombs in the area, particularly in the Valley of Jehoshaphat.
Steep topography has isolated the valley from the rest of the city (the best access is via the Dung Gate or the Lion's Gate in the Old City), but it's definitely worth trekking down here for a morning of exploration.
