Breakfast at our hotel. Today, visits will include sites in Jerusalem and the Old City.
Mount of Olives
Mount of Olives is situated on the east side of the Old City. On top of the mountain, is a beautiful panoramic view of the Old City and the Golden Gates. On the bottom of the mount, is an urban garden, most famous for the site where Jesus prayed in many occasions prior to His crucifixion.
The Upper Room and David’s Tomb at Mt. Zion:
Also known as the “Room of the Last Supper”, located above David’s Tomb compound. The site of the Upper Room is believed by many was the room where Jesus had His last Passover meal, prior to His incarceration.
Jewish Quarter (Old City):
Situated is the southeastern sector of the walled city. It stretches to the Zion Gate in the south and extends to the Western Wall and the Temple Mount in the east.
The Jewish quarter was reconstructed after the city was unified after the Six-Day War in 1967. A special point of interest in the restored Jewish Quarter is the “Cardo”, meaning the “heart” of this ancient Byzantine City. See the unearthed (main) Roman thoroughfare and the ancient marketplace lined with columns. Visit the Roman Cardo and the Herodian quarter
Also known as “The Kotel”, or “The Wailing Wall” and “Temple Mount Wall”. The Western Wall is the last remaining structure after the destruction of the temple. It is considered the holiest place for Jews.
Also known as the “Stations of the Cross” was the pathway to Jesus’ Crucifixion. The Stations of the Cross is now home to the many colorful bazaars and merchant marketplace.
Church of the Holy Seplechre
It is believed by many Christians, this was the site of Golgotha; where Jesus was crucified and where he resurrected.
It is believed by many Christians, this was the site of where Jesus was born at the Church of the Nativity. Prior to visiting the Nativity, view Rachel’s Tomb.
