Jerusalem Old City & Bethelem-Full Day
Pick up from your hotel to explore Old and New Jerusalem. Begin with a panoramic view of the city from Mount of Olives (may be replaced by Mount Scopus). Enter the Old City through one of its famous gates. Explore the restored Jewish Quarter and visit the Cardo, an ancient Roman marketplace where you can still shop today. Stop at the Western Wall which is considered the holiest place where Jews are permitted to pray. Continue to the Christian Quarter and walk along the Via Dolorosa, following the Stations of the Cross to the Church of the Holy Sepulchre that contains the two holiest sites in Christianity: the site where Jesus was crucified and his empty tomb.
Drive to the city of Bethlehem. Walk through Manger Square to visit the Church of the Nativity, said to be the location of the birth of Jesus. Proceed to the Milk Grotto Church and Shepherds’ Field that Christian tradition believes to be the location that the Holy Family found refuge during the Massacre of the Innocents. Stop at a local souvenir store before returning to Jerusalem where the tour ends.
