Tour OverView

The Bethlehem Tour from Jerusalem 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. According to Christian tradition, this 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. After passing the Armenian Chapel of the Kings, we will also visit the Catholic Church of St. Catherine, adjoining the Basilica of the Nativity.

Our last stop in our tour of Bethlehem, before we return to Jerusalem to end our day, will be a beautiful overview of the Shepherds’ Fields, and the special Church of the Shepherds’ Fields.

*Due to visitor overload, a visit down to the Grotto of Nativity might not be possible because of the tour time schedule
