Tourist Tip #244 Jerusalem on the Ancient Madaba Map

A mosaic map found on the floor of a 6th-century Byzantine church in Jordan offers a useful and unusual guide to the Old City of Jerusalem.

It might seem odd at first that this tourism tip highlights a mosaic floor in Madaba, Jordan – but bear with us. A link to the colorful mosaic can be found here. Enlarge it and follow along. And a modern map of today’s Old City could be helpful for orientation and comparison.
