It’s common to spot tourists towing an extra suitcase full of goods on their way home from a visit here. Expect to bargain at most shops in the Old City, while the opposite is true for goods in downtown’s Ben Yehuda Street. Expect to find a wide range of Judaica as well as home pottery and jewelry, particularly silver.
