Bethlehem, the birthplace of both Jesus and King David, hosts some of the most significant sites of the Christian religion. On this day tour of Bethlehem you will visit the city’s most interesting historical sites, including the Church of the Nativity.
Please read below for more details, or go back to browse all our Bethlehem tours.
The Behlehem Tour begins with the Nativity Circle and a visit to Bethlehem’s Manger Square, perhaps the city’s most important square, named after the manger Jesus was born in. Manger Square is home to the Church of the Nativity, one of the world’s oldest-standing churches still functioning to this day.
We will visit the Grotto of the Nativity, a cave located under the Church, which according to Christian tradition, is the place where Jesus was born, the exact spot marked by a 14-pointed star of silver set into the floor.
We will visit the main Basilica of the Nativity, designed in the typical Roman-style Basilica, and constructed on the ruins of its predecessor in 565 AD. We will also visit the Catholic Church of St. Catherine, adjoining the Basilica of the Nativity, and the nearby Milk Grotto, where Mary nursed her son as the family was taking refuge before their flight into Egypt. A Franciscan Chapel is built above the Milk Grotto.
Our last stop in our tour of Bethlehem, before we return to Jerusalem to end our day, will be to a beautiful overview of the Shepherds’ Fields, and the special Church of the Shepherds’ Fields.
Tour finish in Jerusalem at 13:30 at David Citadel Hotel (no return to Tel Aviv)
