This two-day tour shows you the highlights of the Old City of Jerusalem, Bethlehem and also gives you time to relax at the theraputic Dead Sea.
Our day begins with a dramatic panoramic overview of the new and old city of Jerusalem from the Mount of Olives, including the Temple Mount in the old city. From the Mount of Olives we travel along the Kidron Valley to view the Garden of Gethsemane and the City Walls.
We enter the Old City via the Armenian Quarter and visit the Wailing Wall. Walking through Jerusalem’s Old City Bazaar we reach the Christian Quarter, and follow the Via Dolorosa – the Stations of the Cross- to the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, the site of the crucifixion.We then make our way to the renovated Jewish Quarter and the Cardo, walking along the old Byzantine main street, dating back 1,700 years.
From the Old City of Jerusalem we head out to Bethlehem, driving via the Nativity Circle. In Bethlehem, we visit the cave where Jesus was born as well as the special Manger Square, which holds the Church of the Nativity, possibly the world’s oldest existing church. We also visit the Milk Grotto, where Mary fed her son. Our last stop in Bethlehem before we return to Jerusalem to end our day will be to the Shepherds’ Fields, and the beautiful Church of the Shepherds’ Fields.
