Jerusalem Old City & Church of the Holy Sepulchre

 

We start with a spectacular panoramic overview of the old and new city of Jerusalem, we see the old city and the temple mount area, we go back in time as if we view the second temple before it destroyed in 70 CE.

 

Driving along the Kidron Valley, we have a great view of the Garden of Gethsemane, the wall of the old city, the Church Of All Nations and the Mount Olives.

 

On Mount Zion we climb to the traditional room of the Last Supper, the Coenaculum, which according to belief is where Jesus shared his final meal with his Apostles in Jerusalem before his crucifixion.

 

We continue to the Tomb of David The large cenotaph is with a drape on which are embroidered varios attributes of King David including the lyre he played, a crown and the words "David, King of Israel lives forever" in Hebrew. This is a Jewish holy site, therefore men and women are separated.

 

We enter the old city through the Armenian Quarter past the Zion gate, continue to the Byzantine Cardo, Jerusalem's main street 1500 years ago. Today the Cardo is one of the key attractions in the Jewish Quarter of Jerusalem's Old City. A section of Cardo has been reactivated as a shopping street, full of unique arts and special goods.  

 

Continuing through the Jewish Quarter, we stroll to the Western Wall (Kotel) the most significant site in the world for the Jewish people.

 

Enter the Church of the Holy Sepulchre for an extended visit. From the last stops of the Via Dolorosa, we visit the Chamber of the tomb of Jesus originally build in the Byzantine period; it was partially destroyed during the Persians and Muslim conquest. Rebuild and slightly altered by the Crusaders.

 

Climbing the steep steps we will see the Orthodox and Catholic chapels on Clavary, the place of Crucifixion. Continue to the Capella of Helena, the location where the cross was found.
