The Behlehem tour begins with the Nativity Circle and a visit to Bethlehem's Manger Square
. Then we will visit the Grotto of the Nativity
, a cave located under the Church, which according to Christian tradition, is the place where Jesus was born. After that we will visit the main Basilica of the Nativity
, constructed on the ruins of its predecessor in 565 AD. After passing the Armenian Chapel of the Kings, we will also visit the Catholic Church of St. Catherine
, adjoining the Basilica of the Nativity. Our last stop in our tour of Bethlehem
, before we return to Jerusalem to end our day, will be to a beautiful overview of the Shepherds' Fields, and the special Church of the Shepherds' Fields.
* Due to visitor overload, a visit down to the Grotto of Nativity might not be possible because of tour time schedule.
