DescriptionBegin your tour of Biblical Jerusalem with a bird’s eye view across the city from the Mount of Olives. From here you can see beyond the Old City walls to Temple Mount and the Dome of the Rock. Then drive down the mount, passing an ancient Jewish cemetery, the Biblical Garden of Gethsemane, the stunning Church of All Nations and the Kidron Valley where monumental Jewish tombs have stood for centuries. As you approach the Old City, you'll pass the Dormition Church and arrive on Mount Zion. In Jerusalem, visit the Room of the Last Supper where Christ ate with his Apostles on the eve of his crucifixion. This room is also called the Upper Room as it is on a floor over the site of King David’s Tomb. Then enter the Old City Armenian Quarter via the Zion Gate and pass the Armenian Church of St. James. Your tour guide will tell you about the fascinating Armenian culture, before you move on to the Jewish Quarter. Here the tour pauses at the Byzantine-era Cardo. This excavated, 1,500-year-old street was once Jerusalem’s main thoroughfare. In the Jewish Quarter you'll stop to see the sacred Western Wall. As the last surviving part of the Second Jewish Temple, the Western Wall is the holiest Jewish landmark in the world. Here you'll join others who come to place a prayer note in the crevices of the ancient wall. Then, retrace the course Jesus took as he carried his cross to Calvary along the Via Dolorosa. You'll arrive at the sacred Holy Sepulchre. This 4th century church holds the last few Stations of the Cross including Calvary where Jesus was crucified and his burial tomb. The vast structure is shared by several Christian denominations and has more than 30 chapels. Then, conclude your tour with a little retail therapy in the traditional Old City bazaar before the trip back to your hotel.
