Today we begin this exciting trip with a panoramic overview of both the old and new city from the Mount of Olives. From here you will be able to see the Temple Mount Esplanade, as well as the entire old city and its surroundings. The Mount of Olives offers one of the most breathtaking views of Jerusalem.
We then travel along the Kidron Valley to visit the Garden of Gethsemane. Then we will proceed to enter the old city via the Armenian Quarter. Our first stop will be the Wailing Wall and the square in front of it. Afterwards we will then stroll through the local Bazaar to the Christian Quarter, to follow the Stations of the Cross, otherwise known as the Via Dolorosa, a professional guide explaining and bringing to life every stop along the way to the memorable Church of the Holy Sepulchre, sight of the crucifixion. From the Chruch of the Holy Sepulchre, we walk along the 1700 year-old Byzantine main street, until we reach the Cardo and the renovated Jewish Quarter.
We return to our bus in order to descend to the northern coast of the Dead Sea through the beautiful Judean hills. Spending several hours in the Dead Sea we could enjoy the distinctive experience of floating in water, heavily concentrated in salts. You may also immerse yourself in a mineral-rich all-natural Dead Sea mud bath. Our return route to Jerusalem will stop at a viewpoint to see the city of Jericho.
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.
A site of immense religious significance for both Judaism, as a cemetery, and Christianity, as the location of Christ's ascension to heaven, Jerusalem's Mount of Olives was named for the crop that grew over its slopes.
This prominent hill in the Old City of Jerusalem is the location of the Dome of the Rock. In ancient times, it was home to Solomon's Temple and Herodian walls.
This small section of the ancient wall of Jerusalem is one of the city's most popular spots for Jewish prayer. In ancient times, it was built to protect the second major temple that was constructed on the Temple Mount.
This quarter of Jerusalem was centered around the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. The quarter is shared equally by Roman Catholics, Greek Orthodox, and Armenian Christians alike.

In ancient Roman cities, the Cardo was the main central street. The one in Jerusalem was built after most of the city was destroyed due to a Jewish rebellion in the 130s AD.
Located in the southeastern section of the Old City of Jerusalem, this quarter is filled with tight alleyways and numerous yeshivas and synagogues. It is home to about 2,000 residents.
