Description

Start your tour of Jerusalems Modern parts by passing with your vehicle the Israeli Parliament building known as the Knesset, the Museum of Israel and the Shrine of the Book.

First stop is on the top of Mount of Olives. Named after its olive tree-planted slopes, this place is thought to be where the dead will be resurrected on Judgement Day. The views from here are outstanding. From here, continue your drive to the Garden of Gethsemane, where Jesus went to pray after the Last Supper and was betrayed by his disciple Judas. A visit to the Church of All Nations is part of the visit there.

The main part of this morning is a walking tour through the old city following the path Jesus took as he carried his cross to Calvary, a visit the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, the site of Jesus’ crucifixion, burial and resurrection and a glimpse of the shimmering mosques of Al-Aqsa and The Dome of the Rock.

Your last stop there is at the Western Wall, the place where Orthodox Jews pray.This is your chance to put a note with a prayer into the cracks of the wall.

Lunch break in one of the many restaurants in the old city or a light snack from the wide choices of Oriental foods there.

The final destination of this unforgetable day is the visit to Bethlehem to see one of Christianity most sacred sights – the Church of Nativity. Built on the same site as the stable where Mary gave birth to Jesus.

You will enjoy some free time for Shopping in Bethlehem- souvenirs, wooden sculptue, old coins and much more…
