OverviewHide
Explore the places told about in the sacred books on this enlightening tour of Jerusalem and Bethlehem. Begin in ancient Jerusalem whose religious significance is shared across faiths. See the Western Wall, the most sacred Jewish landmark and place of pilgrimage in the Old City. Enter the Garden of Gethsemane atop the Mount of Olives, where history’s greatest betrayal occurred, and gaze out at panoramic views of Jerusalem. Follow parts of the cobbled streets of Via Dolorosa, the Way of Suffering, along which Jesus is said to have carried the crucifixion cross through jeering crowds. Make way to the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, believed to be his final resting place. Continue to the town of Bethlehem, set within the Palestine Authority, for a moving visit to the sacred Church of the Nativity. Afterwards, enjoy free time to shop for keepsakes and mementos of this unforgettable journey in the Holy Land.
