Since Jerusalem is an old city, built part by part, it's quite difficult to find your way around. Make sure you have a detailed map with you and don't hesitate to stop and ask locals for directions.
Jerusalem is built on a mountain and there is a mountain belt around it. That means that you will probably drive up and down the hills, so be prepared.

Parking
Parking in Jerusalem can be quite difficult and there aren't many available parking places within the city center.
Although there are parking lots that charge a parking fee, it is best to park the car outside the city center (Jaffa Street) and travel by bus or by foot.

Blue and white curbstones means that parking is permitted only via pay-and-display vouchers that can be acquired from street machines.
The use of parking meters is also quite common. There is a sign that indicates the hours and days to which the parking regulations apply next to each blue and white zone.
There are a lot of parking lots spread out in the city. The prices vary for day/night rate.

Road conditions
Jerusalem sometimes can be considered as a maze because of the spread of its roads.
Since there are a lot of small streets, sometimes you have to make a big trip if you turned on the wrong street.
The closer you reach the city center, the narrower the streets become. In the old city, there are entering restrictions and a lot of the sites are unreachable by private cars.
There are central parking lots next to each site where you can park the car and travel by foot.
Private cars cannot drive on Jaffa Street, the driving is only for buses and cabs.

Most of the times, there are traffic jams when entering Jerusalem, especially for vehicles arriving from Tel Aviv on road no.1.
