Jerusalem and Bethlehem
A visit to the holy land is a life changing experience for many believers who literally step back in biblical times to walk where Jesus walked and see many historical sites.
This tour will take you in and around the old walled city of Jerusalem to many points of interest. Also on your schedule is a side trip to Bethlehem, the birthplace of Jesus.
Your expedition begins as you enter the walls of the old city of Jerusalem to explore its Christian, Jewish and Armenian quarters. You will visit the Wailing Wall, aptly named for the devout who cry out in prayers at the wall.
See the Temple Mount and King David's Citadel, then retrace Jesus' footsteps to his crucifixion on the venerated Via Dolorosa. Stand in the Church of the Holy Sepulcher that was built over the tomb of Jesus and be on the lookout for good finds while strolling in the Arab Market.
Just outside the old city walls you will see Mount Zion, King David's tomb and Garden of Gethsemane where Jesus stayed up all night praying with his disciples.
During this approximately 11-hour tour you will also travel to the West Bank city of Bethlehem. Visit the Church of the Nativity, constructed over the cave where Jesus was born and be sure to pick up a souvenir carved out of olive wood by Bethlehem's skilled artisans before your return to the Port of Haifa. There will be a stop at a souvenir shop as part of the itinerary.
