Day 1 Jerusalem Old & New 1-Day

Guests will be picked up for this tour from Tel Aviv and Jerusalem hotel locations. We will begin by taking a panoramic view of the entire city of Jerusalem, old and new, from the summit of the Mount of Olives, overlooking the Temple Mount. Next, we will travel along the Kidron Valley to visit the Garden of Gethsemane, where Jesus and his disciples prayed the night before his death. We will then enter the old city through the Armenian Quarter, stopping at the Wailing Wall. Then we will stroll through the local bazaar to reach the Christian Quarter. Once here, we will follow the Stations of the Cross, the route along which Jesus bore his cross after he had been condemned to death, until we reach the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, site of the crucifixion. From here, we will stroll along the Cardo, the main road built by the Ancient Romans, arriving in the newly-renovated Jewish Quarter. We will then ascend Mount Zion, and, on Saturdays, visit the Hall of the Last Supper and King David's Tomb. Leaving the old city, we will tour the new city by car until we reach the Yad Vashem Holocaust Museum. After this, guests will be returned to their hotels, bringing an end to the tour.

Note: Guests are asked to please respect the dress code and to wear modest clothing, covering their shoulders and refraining from wearing shorts.

Over the past thousands of years, this city has seen some of the most defining moments in human history. It is where Jesus was crucified, Solomon built his temple, and Mohammed made his final pilgrimage.
